About this title

Synopsis:

The Big Ship: Brunel's Great Eastern - A Pictorial History by Patrick Beaver, 1987, Later Printing. This is a Collectible, Hardcover Book and dust jacket. The book is is a Lime Green cloth over boards with gold lettering on the spine. The book is tight and square with nice, sharp, crisp, clean pages. The dust jacket has been placed in an archival, clear, Mylar for further protection and preservation. Surely no other ship has had such a dramaticcally eventful - and disastrous - career as did Isambard Kingdom Brunel's legendary Great Eastern. During her construction, which took 6,000,000 rivets and several lives, English noblemen considered it an honour to work as labourers, and she became an attraction for visiting royalty and the focus of national pride and enthusiasm. In this book Patrick Beaver recounts in detail each stage of this remarkable ship's career, illustrating every aspect of the story with his unique collection of photographs and documentary material, much of which has never before been published. He has also made use of Brunel's letters and notebooks, and has provided what must surely be the most vivid and entertaining account of "The Big Ship" that has yet been written.
