HISTORY -- A square-rigged ship has sails that are raised and lowered with a horizontal spar. As the name implies, square-rigged sails have four corners; the sails on modern fore-and-aft rigged ships are triangular. While the operation of a traditional three-masted square-rigger requires the management of hundreds of ropes and lines, the basic elements of navigating one of these ships are fairly easy to understand.

BOOK THE TITANIC - THE FULL STORY OF A TRAGEDY BY MICHAEL DAVIE

MARITIME BOOK COLLECTION
SOME RARE AND NO LONGER AVAILABLE


DESCRIPTION -- Reputed to be one of the best books ever written about the disaster that befell the White Star Line vessel the Titanic, it is written by Michael Davie and contains over 240 pages. (click on the picture to see some pictures from inside the book)
[ONLY 1 AVAILABLE]

CONDITION -- Very Good

HISTORY -- The Titanic disaster isn't what ended the White Star Line, but it pretty much put an end to White Star Line Chairman, J. Bruce Ismay. Ismay was highly ridiculed by both the press and the public for surviving the disaster. The press felt Ismay, being president of the White Star Line, should have gone down with the ship as Captain Smith did. One newspaper even dubbed him "J. (Brute) Ismay." Several 1912 newspapers suggested (as some recent motion pictures have) that Ismay overrode Captain Smith's orders en-route, and ordered full speed, knowing there was ice in the area in an attempt to beat the Olympic's Atlantic crossing record. There is no hard evidence however, to support this theory.
