Book Description

14 Sep 2011 Titanic Collection
The name Titanic has become synonymous with catastrophe, the story of this luxurious liner legendary. Wrecked after colliding with an iceberg on her maiden voyage, the loss of around 1,500 lives among her passengers and crew has gone down in history as one of the most emotive and tragic disasters in history.
 
In this evocative collection of photographs the authors of Titanic The Ship Magnificent tell her full story, from the shipyards of Harland & Wolff and its early vessels, with the backdrop of the great race to build the biggest and best passenger liner, to the frenzy of excitement surrounding her launch. Looking at her officers and crew, as well as her stops at Cherbourg and Queenstown – including some special, rare photographs – the book follows the story to its inevitable conclusion, considering the lifeboats, the presence of the Carpathia and the aftermath of the disaster.

STEVE HALL and BRUCE BEVERIDGE set up the Titanic Research & Modeling Association (TRMA). Steve has built an extensive Olympic-class library and photographic portfolio, one of the finest collections privately held. All of the authors are often contacted by the media to comment the wreck, theories and research surrounding the ship, have published articles, and conduct Titanic talks.

Review

"The ultimate "Titanic" reference book . . . the extraordinary collection of visual documentation . . . constitutes the most exhaustive guided tour of the ill-fated vessel ever published." --"Library Journal" on "Titanic: The Ship Magnificent"

About the Author

Daniel Klistorner is the world's foremost expert on Titanic's passenger accommodations and has consulted to the media, auction houses and museums around the world. Steve Hall, a renowned Titanic visual historian, has collected, studied and researched the ships photographic record for over three decades. Bruce Beveridge is one of the foremost authorities on Titanic's exterior and general working arrangements, and, with Scott Andrews, is a recognised authority on the technical aspects of her layout and construction. All four, along with Titanic modeller and researcher Art Braunschweiger, previously wrote TITANIC: The Ship Magnificent, the most comprehensive book published on Titanic to date.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE book for 2012 1 Oct 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
We may only be in October and with the fast approaching 100th anniversary of the loss of the Titanic almost upon us, the increase of books on the subject is expected. But one book stands out from the rest as THE book for 2012 - 'Titanic in Photographs'. As a long time researcher and collector on Titanic, we crave for those new finds. And, oh boy does this book deliver. Not only do we see a wide selection of photographs we have all been raised upon in a clarity not seen before, but throughout the book are many newly published images, here for the first time and in one handsome volume. The book is a pure gem, page after page. Not to be confused with other photographic books previously released, 'Titanic in Photographs' captures the spirit of Titanic like never before and in photographs that could have been taken only yesterday. Each chapter starts with a page or two, a prequel for the images. Then the images along with captions continue the story. In short, the book is a joy. And finally, it's a book on the subject where the authors and those involved know the difference between Titanic and her sisters. What you see is what you get - Titanic, in every bit of the sense.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating view of a doomed ship 16 Oct 2011
By Brian M
Format:Hardcover
I'm not a Titanic buff, but like a lot of people I'm intrigued by the tragic, almost mythic, dimensions of the ship and what befell it. This book was an impulse buy, but I'm glad I did as it provides a fascinating general overview of the ship, with a great selection of photographs and period pictures that take the reader from construction to the survivors arrival in New York. The authors are obviously experts in the field, and have done a fantastic job at compiling a visual record that will appeal to a wide range of general readers (as well, I'm guessing, to confirmed buffs).

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful visual history of the Titanic 6 Oct 2011
Format:Hardcover
The influx of new Titanic books has begun. While most are rehash of old information, the authors of 'Titanic in Photographs' show that with hard work and research, there is much new information to be found.. Each page brings a new discovery, with detailed captions of when and where the photo was taken. The photos are crisp and clear, and one cam visualize themselves at the other end of the camera. Similar books will be published, but most likely they will not compare to this excellent volume.

I should start my review by acknowledging that I am thanked in the book's acknowledgements, that I supplied several images to the authors, and that I write for the same publisher. However, I have no financial interest in the product. In fact, my own books could be potentially construed as `competitor' titles. My background, in my opinion, helps me to evaluate the true worth of the book.

It has been a privilege to see some of the book's development behind the scenes. An enormous amount of work by a number of individuals has combined to produce a wonderful book. I know from my own experience the amount of effort and co-ordination involved in producing a book with even one author, but the combined efforts of the authors come together seamlessly.

`Titanic In Photographs' is just that: a picture chronicle of the doomed liner, with all stages of her life documented in crisp photography. Olympic rarely appears, unless she is alongside her less fortunate sister ship. Where she does, such as in the remarkable colour images of first, second and third class accommodation, it is welcome. There are numerous Titanic pictures that are either rare or have never been seen in previous books, despite the gargantuan number of titles.

Photographs which have been seen before are reproduced at a very high quality. The text is accurate, informative and a pleasure to read.

Even in the smallest details, the book shines. Where photographs have been widely published before, their captions here reveal new information or little known facts: such as the first class stateroom, photographed prior to the maiden voyage, with life belts visible in the picture. The caption explains who the occupants of the stateroom were that wore these lifebelts, and whether or not they survived.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional research 30 Dec 2011
Format:Hardcover
A wonderful collection showing the construction, launch and voyage of the Titanic with an accurate narrative. Early books used to say how few photographs there were of the ship but the authors have put together a wonderful collection. A must have for enthusiasts and a refreshing antidote (and pretty conclusive proof) against some of the ludicrous conspiracy theories

5.0 out of 5 stars If you only buy one Titanic book this year... 3 Feb 2012
Format:Hardcover
This book really is a class apart. I've had an extensive look at a lot of the new Titanic books that have been released over the last few months and this one stands out as THE book to buy, even if you have just a passing interest.

The reasons? Firstly, quite simply, the pictures themselves. Many of these are very rare, others famous, but the breadth and quality of these images is outstanding.

Secondly, although this book's aim is to tell the life story of the Titanic in images (and there are a lot of images), there is a fair bit of text running throughout which serves to contextualise the images and provide a narrative, and the quality and authority of this narrative is first class and has obviously been written by some true Titanic experts.

Thirdly, the price. Amazon's discount notwithstanding, the actual RRP of this book - 20 - is exceptional value. I would be delighted to pay 20 for this book given the quality of the end product.

The authors and publishers of this piece of work should be congratulated. It appeals to newcomers as well as Titanic buffs, and has clearly been a labour of love.

Many books are appearing that are jumping on the Titanic bandwagon, but this book must have started the bandwagon as it is clearly the one to beat. Forget the gimmicky Haynes book (which incidentally is full of innacuracies and looks hastily thrown together), this volume is worth 100 of its nearest competitor. Bravo.
