Descripción Sampson Low, Marston & Co., London [no date - 1930?], 1930. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Fair. No Jacket. 1st Edition. First Edition - this copy signed by the author on the front endpaper and dated June 1930. 242pp. Blue cloth lettered in black at spine and upper board. With a colour frontispiece, two colour plates and eighty-one half-tone plates. Cloth quite chafed, soiled, rubbed and discoloured, and tender at upper gutter. Fox spotted throughout. A former owner name inked to front pastedown. A dusty and quite handled copy of the history of the RMS Aquitania, written and signed by the ship's Captain, Ernest Diggle. The Aquitania, the third in Cunard Line's 'grand trio' of express liners, was designed by Leonard Peskett and launched in April 1913. She was widely regarded at the most attractive ship of her time, earning the nickname 'Ship Beautiful', and, bar the QE2, holds the record for the longest service career of any twentieth century express liner, serving in and surviving both World Wars.
