The largest, most luxurious ship in the world, lost on her maiden voyage after colliding with an iceberg in mid Atlantic, Titanic has become the stuff of legends. Built at the peak of the race between the British, French and Germans to build bigger and better ships, she was the achievement of 10,000 men in one of the world’s most advanced shipyards. While everyone knows the new White Star liner was the most luxurious afloat and was struck by tragedy on her maiden voyage, few know what the ship was really like inside or how advanced her design was for her day.
In this comprehensive and lavishly illustrated work, Bruce Beveridge, Scott Andrews, Steve Hall, Daniel Klistorner and Art Braunschweiger look in detail at the ship itself, how it was built and her interiors deck by deck. From the engine rooms to the First Class parlour suites, from china to cargo cranes, every area of Titanic is presented in two stunning volumes. Volume One covers her design and construction, with individual chapters detailing such diverse areas as the riveting of the hull, her heating and ventilation systems, engines, steering and navigation systems and more. Volume Two covers the interior design and fitting out of the ship and presents detailed deck-by-deck information, from the palatial rooms of First Class to areas seen only by the crew – a veritable guided tour of the “ship magnificent”.
