Product Description

Cunard Line:  A luxurious intro brochure for the AQUITANIA aimed at the carriage trade.  It must been printed right after the ship’s 30 May 1914 maiden voyage as by that August she was drafted into the British Navy. 

The covers are an elegant textured stock with the details embossed. The tissue end papers show abstract Viking ships on a wavy sea.  "When the AQUITANIA was launched on April 21, 1913, she combined in her design and construction all that experience deduced from the performance of the LUSITANIA and MAURETANIA and their famous predecessors," boasted Cunard in the introduction.  "To their qualities of security, comfort, and speed she added that of great size, processing the distinction of being the largest British liner afloat."  

To back up that claim, Cunard filled this thirty-page brochure with b&w photos of both First and Second classes.  A sampling of the photos show, from First Class, the Palladium Lounge, Entrance Lobby, Long Gallery, Grand Stairway, Grill Room, Dining Room, Smoking Room, Library, Garden Lounge, Vestibule, Gymnasium, Swimming Pool, plus a multiple of stateroom, suite, and deck scenes.  Second Class photos include the Smoking Room, Dining Room, Verandah Café, and even the hair dressing salon.  In the center is a spread of photos showing the AQUITANIA tied up at Liverpool and New York.  More unusual views in this brochure include a motor lifeboat with wireless, other lifeboats stacked two high on the Boat Deck, the stern filled with bundled up passengers, and the open upper bridge, complete with engine telegraphs and steering platform.  

Very good condition with a little tear on the front cover in the lower right corner.
