When she set sail from Southampton on April 10, 1912, RMS Titanic was the largest liner in the world. Four days out on the night of April 14 she struck an iceberg and sank within a matter of hours taking the live of more than 1,500. Survivor accounts from interviews in the immediate aftermath of the disaster are recorded here that were taken from newspapers of the time and from reporters’ interviews. Together with numerous maps, diagrams, drawings and editorial cartoons and photographs, Sinking of the Titanic is well established as part of the canon of Titanic literature. This book is a must have for anyone with an interest in the ship and her sorrowful fate.
More than any other Titanic book, this one has received more inquiries to the THS than any other. It has been the subject of a couple of articles in The Titanic Commutator. Sold door to door all over the United States by salesman, published in English and foreign languages for the new immigrant population, Sinking sold thousands of copies in the months after the disaster. Reprinted from the original 1912 edition. Softcover. 190 pages.
