Item Description: Bay Tree Books, London, 1939. Soft Cover. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. First Paperback Edition. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. (UK) No markings, page toned due to quality of the paper, the book is slightly bowed, Good copy with nice clean covers in Good dust jacket, which is repaired to the spine extremities and to upper corner with small pieces of magic tape. Wraps with green and brown Bay Tree books design, 256pp. No illus. Lightoller (1874-1952) was the the second mate on the HMS Titanic and the only senior officer to survive the disaster. (He was the last man to be taken aboard the rescue ship HMS Carpathia) His first account of the Titanic disaster was published in 1912 in the Christian Science Journal. This book his autobiography was published in 1935 by Nichilson and Watson. Thia Bay Tree edition has no date in the book but is most likely late 1930s or very early 1940s. It is the first book of the Bay Tree Book titles. Six of the chapters deal directly with the Titanic out of 36 chapters in the book. Lightoller recounts the disaster in a factual way about what he saw and experienced. There are vignettes of couples staying together in even when the women were asked to go onto the lifeboats but there is no "purple prose". Lightoller interpreted the order of "Women and Chldren first" quite severely and took the order to mean "Women and Children only" which he enforced with a pistol. Lightoller was quite proud of his shipboard traditions and bluntly states in the book that the American inquiry was a "farce" because they didn't understand these traditions. He is quite carefuly in the book to clear up a misunderstanding about a certain Major Peuchen, a Canadian, who was blamed for going with one of the lifeboats. Lightoller says that Peuchen was later castigated unfairly as he (Lightoller) gave Peuchen a direct order to go with the lifeboat as there were no seaman available then to go with that particular boat. Lightoller was very careful not to cast blame on his employer the White Star Line in the inquiries (despite excessive speed, and non-functioning binoculars on the crowsnest) but in the end the White Star Line turned its back on the staff having anything to do with the Titanic disaster and Lightoller's chances of career advancement with them was effectively over. Many of Lightoller's recommendations for avoiding future disaster were later adopted by maritime agencies. There is much in the rest of the book as well as Lightoller recound his early career and later his service with teh Royal Navy where he was awarded the Distinguished Sevice Cross.

Item Description: Ivor Nicholson and Watson, London, 1936. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Nr VG. No Jacket. First UK Edition. Rebound in black cloth, original spine label to spine. new endpapers. Lacks frontispiece, dedication and one contents page misbound backwards. Two loose pages laid in (Pages 55 & 71). Textblock with faded topstain is fairly clean, mild foxing throughout, and particularly on title and half title pages, and spotting at page edges. Author's biography of his sea career, including the Titanic; he was superceded as Chief Officer before sailing by the First Officer of the Olympic; hence he and other officers' stepped a rank lower, he then becoming Second Officer. Caused some confusion- and a typical idiotic Office-Wallah decision. The junior deck officer was left behind, so I guess he was pleased as well as fortunate. In the movie Lightoller was played by Kenneth Moore. 344pp. Rebound. Bookseller Inventory # 044169
