There is perhaps a haunting aura surrounding the athentic items possessed by those aboard the Titanic on its last night at sea. This text unveils these historic treasures, such as multimillionaire John Jacob Astor's gold pocket watch and cuff links, and one of three existing Titanic life-jackets.Reseña del editor:
More than 80 years after her renowned maiden voyage, stories of the Titanic continue to intrigue us. Now this elegant gift book offers an intimate and unique look at the motivations, feelings, and personal stories of the people involved with the unsinkable shipz Based on the wildly popular expedition of the same name at the Mariners' Museum, Titanic: Fortune and Fate displays more than 200 photographs of authentic artifacts and portraits that illuminate such astounding personal narratives as:
-- "A Star is Born": Actress Dorothy Gibson is sailing home to her lover, a married man and movie backer. She makes it into a lifeboat and goes on to star in the first Titanic movie.
-- "Whither Thou Goest": Macy's founder Isidor Straus and his wife Ida are known for their devotion to one another. Urged into a lifeboat, Ida takes Isidor's hand and says, "Where you go, I go".
-- "Self-Fulfilling Prophecy": Steward Angus Davis was upset with his lowly station and wrote before the vessel sailed that he "hoped the ship would go down to the bottom of the ocean". He did not survive.
Building on these remarkable tales, some tragic, some heroic, Titanic: Fortune and Fate centers around images, quotations, and text that relate to a concept or emotion -- e.g. pride (in the vessel and her technological supremacy). The result is a stunning emotional range that has yet to be captured in print.
