Ocean Liners, Travel on the Open Seas €30,00

Mallard Press 1990. 144 pages hardcover in dustjacket. Colour, black and white and sepia plates. For over a century, the sophisticated traveler has crossed the Atlantic in the majestic, graceful ocean liner. From the age of the Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse and the White Star Line to today's floating resorts of the Caribbean, these monarchs of the sea have intrigued the world and reshaped modern travel. The liner, 1be it in the ports of Southhampton or the shipyards of Scotland, on the Atlantic, or exploring the exotic sights of the South Seas, has become the symbol of technology, speed, and luxury Ocean Liners traces the exciting history of the liner from the early days of paddlewheelers and sail-rigged vessels through the glory days of the 1920s and 30s to today's focus on affordable, relaxing cruises. Relive the years of innovation as Great Britain and Germany engaged in competition for the business of wealthy frequent travelers. Sail in comfort once again as the liner becomes the only way for businessmen, vacationers, immigrants, and even royalty to cross the Atlantic. Revisit the days of growth in ship size, popularity, and comfort during the years before World War II, the impressment of the liners during the war, and the changing emphasis of the liners from transatlantic travel to cruising in the age of air travel The first four chapters of Ocean Liners focus on those history-making events during the rise and fall of the Atlantic Crossing. Chapter Five brings to life the great disasters at sea, from the tragedy of the "unsinkable" Titanic to the wartime demise of the Lusitania and Germany's Wilhelm Gustloff. In Chapter Six, discover the ornate history of the comfort and splendor of the cruise, and watch as the ships become more luxurious and the industry matures into today's multi-million dollar business The book closes with a look at the future of the ocean liner as the designers and industrialists reshape it into a sea-going, yet economical hotel, visiting places many once could only dream of. Learn how the great ideas of the past serve as prelude to a fantastic future for all sea-faring vacationers Written by one of the world's foremost experts on the ships, Ocean Liners features breathtaking photos of the great vessels of the past, of the legends once so dominant on the Atlantic, and of the disasters that stunned a world. Ocean Liners is perfect for anyone who loves the sea and thrills to the sight of the glorious craft that float along the oceans to all ports of call
