The Sauder book can be purchased from
the many book search sites like ABE and
Alibris. It will take a little cash as it
is a good work which is in high demand now.
Eric is a great guy and he is a contributor
to this site and may know where to purchase
one more easily.
Spare no effort as this is a must have for any Lusitania book collection. I own a copy and for its 49 pages it manages to cover the subject focus (technological) well and that says nothing about the excellent photo collection Eric and Ken have brought together.
The Lusi is presented in a way that allows us to see her as those who loved to travel on her did. Not overshadowed with hindsight by the terrible end she meet in 1915.
I hope this helps any who are looking at buying this work.
I am unaware of how many copies are available, or if it is an old page on the web site, but according to the site itself, you can purchase a copy of Eric, Bill, and Ken's wonderful book at TRANS-ATLANTIC DESIGNS (AKA Ken Marschalls web site
Regarding the photo collection. I never knew how pretty Lusi was, until I got this book. I do not think you will be disappointed. I wish we could get Eric to do another book or two on her.
Good luck to you.
Im gonna have to agree w/ you, i also wish Eric Sauder would another book. preferably one available in both europe and america. i havent read it yet, though found and ordered it. i just think 50 pages is kinda short for details and stuff, and a book a little longer would do better for details, and with as popular a lusitania as an author Eric Sauder is it'll probably be a best seller, well atleast id buy it and recomend it. you seem to be around the same age as me colleen, only person i know of around my age interested in the lusitania. does anyone know if Peeke's book on the Lusitania is any good? i read some book reviews that make it sound great, though im not sure i can trust them as they were written by the people selling the book.
Omar, found a copy of eric's book on Ken's site. though it look as if someone published the book before transatlantic designs published it, if the book in question is HC and published by a different company ill be interested
I quite agree, especially if it is anything like the Lynch/Marschall volume on the TITANIC.
While I have praised the bredth of photograph work in the Sauder/Marschall greatly, it must be said that this is not the final word in the photographic record on the Lusi having seen some new material elsewhere in ET.
I am sure I am not alone in expressing the desire to see more paintings by Ken about this ship.
Congrats Eric - I look forward! Great title too!
Will go very well with my signed orig copy of Aylmers "Mauretania: The Ship and Her Record". Now if I can get you to sign one I will have 2 wonderful signed 1st ed's about these great sisters!
Nothing better than seeing more of Eric Sauder's work published! This just shot to the top of my 'must have' list - there's no more meticulous, readable researcher/author out there in maritime studies...not just WSL or Cunard, but across the board.
