Descripción

Showcasing photographs and illustrations from a variety of collector’s archives. The Unseen Mauretania 1907 reveals the Cunard company’s most luxurious ocean liner of the early twentieth century as you have never known her before. When the Mauretania took to the North Atlantic for the first time in November 1907, she was the largest and fastest ship in the world, serving with her sister ship, the Lusitania, for nearly eight years. Although the Lusitania’s life was cut short during the Firts World War, the Mauretania cintinued to have an impressive presence at sea, holding the Blue Riband for the fastest trasantlantic crossing until 1929. The evocative visual histot¡ry by maritime expert J. Kent Layton follows her glorious career, which spanned four decades of the twentieth century. (SIN STOCK, AGOTADO EN EDITORIAL)
