Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The largest, most luxurious ship in the world, wrecked on her maiden voyage after colliding with an iceberg in mid-Atlantic, has become the stuff of legends. While everyone knows the new White Star liner was glamorous and full of millionaires when she sank, few appreciate just how luxurious she was. Even in third class, the accommodation was better than in first class on many older ships. From cobalt blue Spode china and Elkington plate silverware in the a-la-carte restaurant to the design of the boilers and fixtures and fittings onboard the world's most luxurious vessel, they tell the story of a liner built at the peak of the race between the British, French, and Germans to build bigger and better ships.

Ship-building 101 (circa 1908) in layman's terms. Worth the price for the photos alone. If ever you wondered about the terms used to describe the ship, this volume explains it all: conception, design, construction, it's all in there.
