Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The splendor and tragedy of the legendary "Titanic" captured in dramatic photo and illustration cards

She was "unsinkable" — a splendid monument to modern engineering and nautical design. But on her maiden voyage, during the night of April 14, 1912, the White Star superliner Titanic struck an iceberg and became a legend — not for its highly publicized "indestructibility," but because of the catastrophe that took the lives of more than 1,500 passengers.

In this remarkable collection, twenty-four reproductions of historic photographs and paintings recapture the character, magnitude, spirit, and tragedy of the great ship. Included are photos of the Titanic in dry dock and on trial runs, its captain, the ship's gigantic engine and rudder, a charmingly outfitted sunroom, and a magnificent stateroom. There are also authentic photographs of grim-faced survivors aboard the rescue ship Carpathia and of the ship's remains on the ocean floor.

This thrilling card collection will fascinate collectors, historians, and anyone captivated by the splendor of ocean liners of the past.
