First published in 1912, within months of the sinking of the Titanic, this historic edition is a sombre yet sensationalistic look at the contemporary accounts of the time. As set forth in the original jacket copy, this âÂ�Â�graphic and thrilling account of the sinking of the greatest palace ever built, carrying down to watery graves more than 1,500 soulsâÂ�Â� gives âÂ�Â�exciting escapes from death and acts of heroism not equalled in ancient or modern times, as told by the survivors, and includes the history of icebergs, the terror of the seas, wireless telegraphy, and modern shipbuilding.âÂ�Â� This collectorâÂ�Â�s edition features specially commissioned illustrations and an updated package from one of LondonâÂ�Â�s leading design studios. An all-new foreword dissects the events leading up to the great disaster and contextualizes the cultural influence of the Titanic today. Re-imagined by the same design team that brought HARRY POTTER FILM WIZARDRY to life, it is designed to replicate the look and feel of the original 1912 publication, complete with a weathered and worn cloth-like cover, decorative ribbon marker, a hand-drawn, colour-tinted map of the shipâÂ�Â�s voyage, and gold-foil stamped pages. Without a doubt, it promises to be a one-of-a-kind collectorâÂ�Â�s item, perfect for the fan who already owns a bookshelf of Titanic-related titles and for the reader looking for something special.
