This is a fascinating book written in 1912. I believe it may be the precursor to those "instant books" that we see so often. The accounts in the book are all first person, and there are many photographs and drawings. It is interesting to read this book knowing what we know now about the disaster. I received this book from a family friend over 40 years ago, and it got me started on my interest in the Titanic. I believe reprints are available in book stores, but there is nothing to match the original.
