Illustrated Mauretania (1907): Notable Episodes in the Life of a Legend (Hardcover)
The natural successor to David F. Hutchings’ acclaimed text-focused Mauretania (1907): Queen of the Ocean, this new illustrated history seeks to fill the gaps in the established literature on this most adored of liners and to visually add to the story of that great liner through the events, both happy and tragic, that befell her across her illustrious career. With amply illustrated accounts of her design, build and launching, perhaps the most dangerous journey of her life, her experience of collision and shipwreck are also included. Along with a vibrant color section and a number of detailed plans, this history through illustrations reflects on the great events of Mauretania’s life with a fascinating historical introduction to each section.
DAVID F. HUTCHINGS’ lifetime love of ships has shaped his life as a shipbuilder and writer.

He has contributed to magazines and DVDs, and regularly lectures on cruise ships. He lives in Lee-on-The Solent, Hampshire.
