The existance of the specification book used in outfitting Titanic & Olympic.
P. Eaton refered to it in "Titanic Triumph & Tragedy".
Would be another good book to re-print! Anyone with the knowledge to check into this being done? I am sure the book would sell!

If you're referring to what's commonly known as Thomas Andrews Notebook, you may be on to something...in 2012. At the moment, interest in anything Titanic related is at a very low ebb. At best, it would appeal to a niche market.

Larry, look at the following thread:

https://www.encyclopedia-titanica.org/discus/messages/5919/71852.html#POST96455

In short, the book is apparently for the Britannic, is (as you say) a separate document than the "Andrews Notebook" (though both apparently have been referred to as a "specification book"), and is in a private collection--not sure whose, but Eaton and Haas, Bill Sauder, and Simon Mills have apparently all referred to it in their writings.

THANKS JAMES!!! That settles things a bit!
I agree with Jason entirely. Ever since reading about that book it "haunts" your mind.

I hope that more important sources like the Specification Book are still hidden somewhere, waiting for 2012 and beyond to be published.
I fear that many important sources like the Specification Book are still hidden somewhere, waiting for 2012 to be sold in auction and disappear for a long time into the hands of rich collectors.
