Book Description

Jan. 1 2012 Titanic Collection

The name Titanic has become synonymous with catastrophe, the story of this luxurious liner legendary. Wrecked after colliding with an iceberg on her maiden voyage, the loss of around 1,500 lives among her passengers and crew has gone down in history as one of the most emotive and tragic disasters in history. In this evocative collection of photographs the authors of Titanic The Ship Magnificent tell her full story, from the shipyards of Harland & Wolff and its early vessels, with the backdrop of the great race to build the biggest and best passenger liner, to the frenzy of excitement surrounding her launch. Looking at her officers and crew, her stops at Cherbourg and Queenstown, and including some special, rare photographs, the book follows the story to its inevitable conclusion, considering the lifeboats, the presence of the Carpathia, and the aftermath of the disaster.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good. April 17 2012
Format:Hardcover
I decided to buy the book because I had heard it wasn't just a rehash of things already said. I was pleasantly surprised to find out it indeed isn't. I've been interested in the Titanic since I was very young and thought I had seen all photographs of the ship until fairly recently. This book had a number of photographs I had not seen and gave proper credit to all of the photographers. I had often wondered about who took the pictures and why, this book explains it all. This will be quite useful with my models.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! June 18 2012
Format:Hardcover
It has been said a picture is worth a thousand words. And in the case of "Titanic in Photographs", this is true! I have been studying the Titanic for 30 years, and was delighted to see many new images which help to clarify the layout of the rooms and passageways, particularly with regard to the differences between the Titanic and her sister, the Olympic. The authors point out unique details that I had hitherto overlooked, and in many cases identify the people captured forever on film that other books neglect to mention. A wealth of new information for those already well-learned in Titanic facts.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have! Jan. 24 2012
By Marcel J - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Another great work from the authors of the 'bible' of Titanic ("Titanic: The Ship Magnificent")

I finally picked up a copy of this book on the weekend and read it in a day. I can vouch for what everybody else here has said that this is an excellent book for any enthusiast's collection.

I was taken by the thoroughness of the photographic record and the written text as well. Its a great start off point for any person just getting interested in the tale of Titanic, or even for the more long term seasoned veteran.

The pictures are very crisp and clear and will be seminal for close study of details. The real selling point of this book is that it contains the uncropped photos of Titanic. Most photos are limited to one page only, thereby eliminating the annoying crease from the book's spine obscuring details. I liked the fact that this was a book of Titanic photos (as the title says) with only the odd Olympic photo standing in when no photo of Titanic existed.

The text is sound, easy to read and engaging. It takes you through from the inception of these large ships to the calamity and aftermath. There are a few details, especially found in the solid captions to each photo, that I was not even aware of. Its always exciting to discover some new tidbit of information regarding Titanic that I never knew before, rather than a simple rehash of the known details.

The mid-colour section is breathtaking, with ample period photos displayed.

As Ken Marschall states in the Forward, such a book of Titanic photos is conspicuously missing from the record, but here is one book that goes over and above. Although it is true that every Titanic photo taken may not have been seen or discovered yet, this volume gives the historian and enthusiast all they can want in having most of the more important photos of Titanic in one exceptional volume. A Must Have!...5 Stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly Surprised Jan. 6 2012
By Transatlantique - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was originally reluctant to buy this because of the fear of redundancy, but my fears were unfounded. This book offers an insight into many photos I hadn't seen before, reproduced in a sharp detail that appears as if they were taken last week. From construction to fitting out, to post disaster, the range of photos is quite satisfying. Of course there are the few that are grainy and fuzzy, but they are few. There are also some colour illustrations that leave one nostalgic.

If you are looking for a great photo book on Titanic, this is the one. The text is moderate, making this more of a photo essay. I don't read much of the text in these kinds of books because I like the visual, so I can't comment on the text.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Great Ship's History in Photographs Dec 30 2011
By Bruce Trinque - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The story of the Titanic from construction to the aftermath of its collision with an iceberg in the North Atlantic on an April, 1912, night is told through the medium of photographs (plus some contemporary publicity illustrations). The construction is covered in as broad a selection of illustrations as I have ever seen, and I would suppose that almost every image taken of the Titanic afloat is reproduced here. For interior views, in a few cases photos from her sister ship, Olympic, are substituted, because no actual Titanic photograph of the desired detail (such as the grand staircase and the elevators) is known to exist.

The book is undoubtedly aimed more towards the Titanic enthusiast than the general reader, in that there is no comprehensive narration to tie everything together. But for that Titanic enthusiast, "The Titanic in Photographs" is a nice addition for the bookshelf. Most, although not all, of the photos have been printed elsewhere, but seldom in such a handy, widely inclusive manner. And a general reader would also enjoy browsing through the collection, I believe, as a window in a hundred years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful visual history of Titanic March 28 2012
By Michael Poirier - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The influx of new Titanic books has begun. While most are rehash of old information, the authors of 'Titanic in Photographs' show that with hard work and research, there is much new information to be found.. Each page brings a new discovery, with detailed captions of when and where the photo was taken. The photos are crisp and clear, and one can visualize themselves at the other end of the camera. Similar books will be published, but most likely they will not compare to this excellent volume.

5.0 out of 5 stars Step back in time with Titanic In Photographs Sept. 12 2013
By Clifford Taylor Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Having so many Titanic books in my collection, I was doubtful if this book would add anything new. I went ahead and purchased it and was thrilled. It is a must have Titanic book!

The quality of the book is first class with raised silver lettering on the cover and rich glossy pages. The book is filled with many rarely seen pictures of the Titanic which was thrilling to see. The photographs in the book are arranged chronologically which is what really gives this book a feel of stepping back in time. Starting from the laying of the first keel plate and ending with the abandoned lifeboats sitting hauntingly in the Titanic's empty New York Pier, no photograph is left out. As you look through the photos, you can feel the excitement of the building of the ship and feel as if you are at the launch, as these events are covered from practically every angle. What is really impressive is the press tour photographs taken on April 10th in Southampton. Photographers from the press were given a tour of the ship prior to sailing and these rare photos show the actual Titanic's interiors. I had seen some of these photos in other books, but I thought they were of the Olympic. The photos continue on to cover the boarding, departure, heading out to sea and stopping at the ships two additional ports. It is sad to see the last photo of the ship heading out to the Atlantic, never to be seen again until 1985 on the bottom of the ocean.

Again, due to the chronological order, the perspectives of the photos make you feel as if you we're there. Each photo is accompanied by information, which is amazingly detailed, offering new information and pointing out things that have gone unnoticed.

This book is a must have and should be included in anyone's collection.
