About this title

Synopsis:

“The Discovery of the Titanic” is the compelling, firsthand account of Dr. Ballard’s twelve-year quest to find the sunken liner.  With the help of dozens of never-before-seen photographs, rare archival pictures, charts, paintings and a 25-inch “photo-mosaic” of the ship, Dr. Ballard recounts the Titanic’s fateful last night and describes the moment-by-moment drama of the expeditions that found and explored her.  For the first time, the exact location of the Titanic is revealed and, finally, many of the mysteries that have surrounded her tragic fate are laid to rest.  Here is the fascinating concluding chapter to a story that has captured imaginations for almost a century, the dramatic account of the most exciting underwater discovery of our time.

From Library Journal:

In September 1985 Ballard and a Franco-American expedition discovered the wreck of the Titanic . Ballard used a specially designed remote imaging system to locate and photograph the wreck and then returned the following year to further survey and photograph the site in a three-person submarine. This pictorial record of his expedition is filled with good quality color and black-and-white pictures. Wherever possible he compares the modern-day pictures to original ones of the Titanic . After briefly discussing other attempts to find the Titanic , he gives a solid account of the sinking, then details the events that led to the ship's discovery. Highly recommended for libraries with an interest in the Titanic. John Kenny, San Francisco Public Library
