9780856408656: Icon of an Age: Titanic
Reseña del editor:

Each watertight door can be released by means of a powerful electric magnet - so that, in the event of accident, the movement of a switch instantly closes each door, practically making the vessel unsinkable. Belfast News-Letter, 1 January 1912 On 10 April 1912, Titanic - a ship that embodied modernity and technological achievement - steamed out of Southampton on her maiden voyage from the Old World to the New. Enshrining the self-confidence and social fabric of the era, Titanic was a microcosm of western civilisation and its misplaced certainties in a gilded age before the First World War. Just four days later, the great ship plunged through more than two miles of freezing water to the ocean floor and over 1,500 of the 2,201 people on board lost their lives. Written and compiled by an internationally recognised expert, Titanic: Icon of an Age is a comprehensive and richly illustrated chronicle of the great liner and her time. Over 250 stunning images - some never published before - including contemporary pictures from the official Harland & Wolff photographic archive; a vast array of sources including extracts from newspapers, journals and White Star publicity as well as postcards, advertisements, letters and other memorabilia; and Michael McCaughan's accessible and authoritative text - all combine to give a detailed and evocative impression of the period and the ship. Written and published in Belfast, the birthplace of the great lost ship, Titanic: Icon of an Age is a vivid exploration of Titanic in its era and a compelling testament to a story that continues to reverberate across time.

Descripción Blackstaff Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 276 x 216 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Titanic is the most famous ship in history and the extraordinary story of her construction and loss continues to capture the human imagination. Even before she sailed in 1912 Titanic was making headlines as the world s largest ship, symbolising the confidence and certainties of her era. Built at Harland Wolff s massive shipyard in Belfast, Titanic took four years, and the expertise of thousands of skilled men, to complete. This new edition of Michael McCaughan s acclaimed book, The Birth of the Titanic (1998), is a visual chronicle of that superhuman achievement set against the backdrop of an age of industry, entrepreneurship and political tensions. Written and compiled by internationally recognised Titanic expert Michael McCaughan, it captures the spirit and vision of the people who built the vast leviathan and the stories of those who sailed on her, describing in detail the construction and launch of the ship as well as the disaster and its aftermath and giving fresh insights into why Titanic continues to fascinate and inspire. Using stunning contemporary photographs from the official Harland Wolff photographic archive as well as sources such as diaries, postcards, letters and White Star publicity this definitive book from Titanic s homeland is an exciting, moving and richly illustrated account of Titanic s remarkable story. A fitting tribute to this iconic lost ship. Nº de ref. de la librería AAZ9780856408656

Descripción Blackstaff Press Ltd. Hardback. Estado de conservación: new. BRAND NEW, Titanic: Icon of an Age, Michael McCaughan, Titanic was not only a ship that embodied technological achievement; she was a microcosm of western civilisation and its misplaced certainties in a gilded age before World War 1.

When she sank, 1,500 of the 2,201 people on board lost their lives and the news caused shockwaves around the world. Titanic: Icon of an Age is a comprehensive and richly illustrated chronicle of the great liner and her time. Over 250 stunning images - some never published before - combine with a wealth of Titanic facts, memorabilia and Michael McCaughan's accessible and authoritative text to give a detailed and evocative impression of the period and the world-famous ship. Written and published in Belfast, the birthplace of the great lost ship and home of Titanic Belfast (the unique museum and discovery centre), this book is a vivid exploration of Titanic in its era and a compelling testament to a story that continues to reverberate across time.
