There has long been a desire and need for a book, or set of books, that cover nearly every facet of the construction of Titanicâ€“â€“from hull plates to funnels and from dinner plates to waste pipes, Titanic The Ship Magnificent undertakes to be that all-encompassing work.
Titanic The Ship Magnificent is a compilation of diverse and assorted sources brought together into one place for the first time. This set of two volumes is the culmination of an effort that spanned years of research and many more hours of editing and annotating. As an anthology that seems to be second-to-none and that includes about 1,500 photographs, drawings and illustrations, the books answer nearly every question about the shipâ€™s design and building. Many photographs have not been published since the time of building of Olympic and Titanic.
The first volume spans 688 pages covering nearly every element of her design and construction with accompanying illustrations, diagrams and plans.
The second volume boasts 512 pages and covers the details of her interiors including hundreds of photographs and deck plans.
