Does anyone know what books, magazines, other reading materials, or art works were aboard the Titanic?

Hi, Aaron!

Two books that were definitely part of the Titanic's library were Owen Wister's "The Virginian" and one of Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes novels. I seem to recall reading (in ANTR?) that Mary Johnston's "Old Dominion" was on board as well.

I've seen it claimed that the ship's library contained a copy of Shackleton's book on the South Pole, but I can't confirm the accuracy of that information.)

All my best,

George
