Just read here that there is an updated version with color photographs. I checked out my copy from the local library and they only had the black and white older copy. This book covers everything related to the Titanic. The court ruled that the liability of the Titanic was $97,772.02 with claims against of $16,804, 112.

Loss of life on average paid $35,376.

Fascinating book and background on everything Titanic.

This is the essential illustrated history of the world's most famous shipwreck, Titanic. Its scope is sweeping, its prose authoritative. There is no greater foundation for study than this refined, encyclopedic tome.

I have not read this straight through, but it is the most comprehensive book on the Titanic that I've come across. Many rare, interesting photos from construction of the ship and after the disaster.
Quite simply the definitive book about Titanic. I've not read any book so well researched, so detailed, and so well written.

This really is a must read book.
