For Titanic book collectors, what are the 10 most sought after books, that would 'complete' your collection?

Here is my vote for the 10 most sought after 'rare' Titanic books-

I have all except for the Walker and Chapin books....


(1) "Olympic/Titanic Shipbuilders" 1911

(2)"Sinking of the Titanic" by Jack Thayer 1940

(3)'Titanic and Other Ships" by C.H Lightoller
1935

(4) "Titanic" by Filson Young 1912

(5) "An Unsinkable Titanic" by J.B Walker 1912

6) "Biblitiotheca Titanica" by H Chapin 1926

(7) "Truth About The Titanic" by A. Gracie 1913
( the scarcer green colored version)

(8) "Loss of the SS Titanic" by L. Beesley 1912
(the scarcer red colered version)

(9) "A Titanic Hero" - by Shan Bullock 1912

(10) The US Senate Titanic Hearings book, 1912



remember, dont use your books as coasters, keep them out of the sun, and dont use sardines as bookmarkers....

I think the next 10 most sought after Titanic related books might be:

(11) "Wreck of the Titan" by Morgan Robertson
1898, or the 1912 editions

(12) "Home From The Sea" by Arthur Rostron, 1940

(13) "Titanic" by Robert Prectyl, 1940 (a novel)

(14) "Titanic" by Elbert Hubbard, republished circa 1920

(15) "Discretions and Indiscretions" by Lady Duff Gordon 1935

(16)"Ocean's Greatest tragedy"(no author listed ) 1912

(17)"Titanic Tragedy- God Speaking to The Nations" by Alma White, 1912 (this book came out in a rainbow of different colors)

(18)"Wreck and Sinking of the Titanic" by Marshall Everett, and the variations therof, as well as the publishers dummy copies...1912


(19)"Sinking of the Titanic.." by Logan Marshall, and variations theof, especially the publishers dummy copies, 1912


(20) "Titanic and the Californian" by Peter Padfield, 1965'

honorable mention goes to

(A) "Les Objects Du Titanic"


I have all of these titles save for the Lady Duff Gordon book. For Titanic book collectors here, dont rely only on Ebay as your only online site for rare Titanic books. Bookfinder.com still is a great sourse to find rare Titanic titles..

*The Ismay Line" by Oldham

*Whie Star by Roy Anderson

these two books compliment each other, and the Anderson book is hands down THE White Star line book..

Sounds like a good list, Jason. I'd love to have Lightoller's and Rostron's books, plus Oldham's The Ismay Line and Booth and Coughlan's Titanic: Signals of Disaster. I'm sure I'll think of others.
