My Titanic book collection

In commemoration of the 100th year of RMS Titanic, I'm sharing here the books I collected over the years waaay before the wreck was discovered in 1985 and the James Cameron film. If you're not familiar with the RMS Titanic tragedy, read more here.

The book that started this collection. I read Walter Lord's A Night to Remember in college in the early 70s. Lord came out with a follow-up book, The Night Lives On.
