Printed LIST with MANUSCRIPT annotations and corrections, R.M.S. “TITANIC”…, 1912 ; title-page and 66 pages in-fol., joined together with a metallic tie (tear to fi rst leaves ; a few stains and dampstains) ; dark-blue halfmorocco slipcase; in English.
Haunting hand-annotated original passenger log of the R.M.S. Titanic.
The title-page reads: R.M.S. “TITANIC”, Sailed April 10th, 1912, From Southampton to New York, Via Cherbourg and Queenstown. First Class Passengers… In the upper left-hand corner a note in red ink: « Corrected ».
The log lists the names and known addresses of survivors, deceased and missing of First, Second and Third Class passengers. Each page is divided into six columns headed: NAME, Saved, Missing, Body Recovered, European Address, and American Address. If a body was found, there is a verifi cation number and both location and name of the person to whom the remains were delivered. Throughout the log are manuscript corrections accomplished in red and black ink inserted when further details were unearthed. The fi rst page for the Second Class passengers is printed “Revised November 20, 1912.” The Third Class passengers section is printed “Revised 20/11/12”. The European style of date notation, with day preceding month, indicates this was the White Star Lines’ up-to-date retained passenger log, notated as new information was discovered.
A remarkable historic record of the dreadful loss of life in the most famous maritime disaster in history.
