Just in time for the centennial of the sinking of the Titanic, this graphic deluxe edition compiles firsthand accounts, testimonies, and letters by notable Titanic survivors, including Archibald Gracie, Lawrence Beesley, Elizabeth W. Shutes, and the "unsinkable" Molly Brown. Full of historically accurate details and an afterword by the grandson of Lawrence Beesley, Titanic Survivors and author of "The Loss of the S.S. Titanic", it will be the gift to give die-hard Titanic buffs. Authoritative, commemorative and in a striking, luxurious package with and introduction by Titanic enthusiast and expert, Tim Maltin, this will be the authoritative work on the disaster.

"With its detailed stories from survivors of the disaster, "Titanic, First Accounts" is hugely engaging and adroitly debunks some of the event's great myths. ("Nearer, My God, to Thee" "wasn't" actually the last song played by the ship's band.) The eyewitness testimonies are equal parts illuminating and haunting, revealing intimate conversations with surviving passengers who didn't fully grasp the scope of the unfolding devastation until it was too late."--"Entertainment Weekly"
