The Illustrated Truth About the Titanic by Archibald Gracie
In April 1912 the Titanic sank, taking 1500 people to their deaths in the freezing Atlantic. One survivor, the author Archibald Gracie, was one of the last to leave the doomed ship, aboard the last lifeboat to leave the stricken vessel. Telling the story of the ship's final days, he was meticulous in his commentary of the sinking and his book, completed just before he died in 1913, is the definitive record of the doomed liner's last few hours. Profusely illustrated with over 100 rare and little seen images of the ship and of the disaster.
