Wreck and Sinking of the Titanic
Baker & Taylor
Offers a detailed account of the luxury liner's plunge into the ocean as remembered by survivors and features specially commissioned illustrations and photographs from the Titanic Historical Society.

A gorgeously produced rediscovered classic, Wreck and Sinking of the Titanic revives 1912’s most exciting and sensational report of the doomed ship’s catastrophic voyage, first published mere months after the Titanic met her fate: “A graphic and thrilling account of the sinking of the greatest palace ever built, carrying down to watery graves more than 1,500 souls…. Exciting escapes from death and acts of heroism not equaled in ancient or modern times, as told by the survivors, and includes the history of icebergs, the terror of the seas, wireless telegraphy, and modern shipbuilding!” Stunningly designed to convey the rich look and feel of the original 1912 publication, with a worn cloth cover, hand-tinted maps, and gold foil-stamped pages, this rare treasure is a must-have for any Titanic fan.
