9781844861484: Titanic Pocket-Book

This guide is a wonderful addition to Conway's best-selling pocket book series that examines this famous ship from a refreshingly different angle. Launched in May 1911, the triple-screw steamer Titanic was the pride of the White Star Line and at that time the largest passenger ship in the world. Built to carry passengers in comfort and luxury on the lucrative transatlantic route, her design, fittings and on board facilites epitomised the spirit of the age in terms of elegance and style. Titanic: A Passenger's Guide is a unique guide to all aspects of the ship, incorporating authentic period literature - from sources including White Star Line themselves, Harland & Wolff shipyards, and important publications from the time.

About the Author:

Lieutenant-Commander John Blake, FRIN, spent twelve years in the Royal Navy. He has worked extensively with the UK Hydrographic Office, the producers of Admiralty Charts, and is a Fellow of the Royal Institute of Navigation. John is the author of the acclaimed Conway publications The Sea Chart (2003) and Sea Charts of the British Isles (2005). His research interests span the maritime world, from nautical charts and surveying to merchant shipping.

Review:

The Titanic Pocketbook: A Passenger's Guide is a slim little book chock full of information about the great ship. Written as though it were in fact an informational book for someone considering sailing on board the Titanic, it begins with the background of the White Star Line, giving details of how the ship came into being. It then goes into much technical information about the actual construction materials; from there we are treated to the particulars of the furnishings and decks, and are even given glimpses of typical menus and sleeping accommodations. This book boasts many great pictures from the period and includes diagrams that clarify positions and opportunities. While it is indeed filled with a wealth of information that any Titanic enthusiast would enjoy, it is often dryly written with minutiae such as how the elevators worked within their frames. Still, it is an interesting slant on the ship and one this buff enjoyed. Historical Novel Society
