The Titanic

by Elbert Hubbard, 1923

This book measures 5" x 4 1/2" and has 32 pages. It was printed on machine made paper with TEG. The binding is suede leather with a marbled dust-jacket. It is not too often that this book is found with the box and dust-jacket. Elbert Hubbard and his second wife Alice died in 1915 onboard the Lusitania. This book was presumably written by him and I am surprised that is was not printed before his death. The 1923 edition is the only printing of this book that I know of.
