The Loss of the Titanic

£19.45
“I Survived the Titanic”
by Lawrence Beesley

This is the centenary edition of a book first published in 1912. The author became well known after the disaster as a survivor and perhaps chief recorder of the events of that dreadful night. His comments on the shortfall of safety arrangements and recommendations for future measures (eg, number of lifeboats, speed in fog etc) carry the rawness and emotion of his own escape from the ill fated Titanic. This classic book has been reset with many contemporary photographs and illustrations. A valuable and gripping record of an eye witness to the loss of a great ship and many lives. Some of his comments did not, I am sure, meet with universal agreement at the time and even today one of two jar, but this tragedy led to many improvements in terms of ship construction and safety arrangements.

Langness Lighthouse on the Isle of Man was established in 1880 and was a manned lighthouse until being automated in 1996. The stars of Orion’s Belt can be clearly seen. The brightest object is actually the planet Jupiter. The dark skies on the Isle of Man make it an ideal location for admiring the celestial wonders (Ron Strathdee www.digitalmanphotography.com)
