The Titanic Tragedy Covered by The NY Times is a special reprint that features a compilation of 62 historic pages detailing the tragedy, just as they appeared in The New York Times in the days following the sinking. This compilation includes dozens of articles, photos, commentary, other news from 1912, advertising, and more.
The Titanic Tragedy Covered by The NY Times tells the full story as it was perceived at that time. The RMS Titanic was the largest passenger steamship in the world, at the time, and represented the height of luxury. She set off on her maiden voyage from Southampton, England, to New York City on April 10, 1912. The Titanic sank at 2:20 AM on April 15 1912, after she struck an iceberg at 11:40 PM the previous night. This was one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history as 1,517 people died in the tragedy. The disproportionate number of men that died is due to the fact that the "women and children first" protocol was followed. The Titanic Tragedy Covered by The NY Times shows, to the great shock of many, that despite the extensive safety features, designed by experienced engineers, with the most advanced technologies available, the Titanic still sank.
This makes an extraordinary gift for history buffs and is a great educational resource!
