Product Description

Ship History: "Damned by Destiny" by David Williams and Richard de Kerbrech, published in 1982, 350 pages, hardbound with original dust jacket.

As the liner notes states: "a complete history of all the World's projects for large passenger liners which, for some reason or another, never entered service."

Some, such as SAL's STOCKHOLM of 1938 and Hapag's second VATERLAND, were destroyed during WW2. Others, such as White Star's proposed OCEANIC, were killed for economic reasons. Very interesting rendering of the BRETAGNE, Vladimir Yourkevitch's proposed consort for the NORMANDIE. Lots of interesting stories, including a series of photos showing the PRINCIPESA JOLANDA, my vote for the most ill-fated ship of all time, sliding down shipyard ways at her launching, and promptly capsizing.

Very good condition with a tear in the dust jacket.
