xiv, 472p., profuse captioned b&w maritime photography, line maps and mail covers; 11.5x9 inch boards gilt in glossy color-repro dust jacket. Entirely clean and sound with faintest handling of jacket, a near-fine copy inscribed and signed opposite the title page by author Drechsel. First volume ends its share of the story with the First World War. Find in this volume "new insight into the 1912 sinking of the Titanic, including a never-published photo [see p.32] of the iceberg seen and reported by the Author's Father's ship, the George Washington, in the position where the Titanic hit an iceberg nearly twelve hours later." --a very spooky-looking, three-peaked spike.

Groot Retired M.S.B.A. Marine Engineer (steam) 5-9 License 37 1/2 yrs. under the Golden Gate a good Dutch name! Edwin Dreschel July, 1994" The author is a foremost international expert on the great German shipping lines and the history of ship mails, and here presents a masterpiece in two volumes covering what is probably the most exciting period in the history of international shipping commerce. In the period from the middle of the 19th century until the end of the first half ot the 20th, shifts in population, especially to the United States, were massive. The maritime industries of most western European countries flourished, with shipbuilding and shipowning becoming major concerns. It was in Germany that the two mightiest companies developed: Hamburg-Amerika and Norddeutscher Lloyd. Both became key instruments to Germany's trade policy and part of the challenge which that country mounted against Britain's maritime supremacy. Of all the lines which crossed the atlantic, no single concern had such a profound effect o the build-up of the American economy during the period of massive European emigration than Norddeutscher Lloyd, as it held the record for transporting more immigrants than any other line. As the son of a Lloyd captain, Edwin Dreschel is the natural one to present this work detailing the company's history and its ships. Please choose Priority / Expedited shipping for faster delivery.
