A grieving world has already recognised Lawrence Beesley as the chief recorder of the Titanic wreck. The sports master at an English public school, who was going West for a tennis tournament, he had no special qualifications for performing the task that fell to him alone out of nearly a thousand survivors but he brought to bare a splendid self-possession upon his observation of the whole sad story, and a turn for accurate observation... a memorable book

The Loss of the Titanic is the thrilling memoir of second class passenger Lawrence Beesley, who survived the sinking of the Titanic in lifeboat 13.

Originally published in 1912, and long out of print in the UK, this classic book has been reset and now contains a wealth of contemporary photos and illustrations. This new edition is also endorsed by Beesleys family and includes a new introduction by his grandson, New York Times journalist Nicholas Wade.

Includes 80 black and white and 20 colour illustrations.
