Here is a super first UK edition copy of A Night to Remember by Walter Lord. Published by Longmans, Green & Co., London in 1956. In excellent condition, richly illustrated and in the original dust wrapper. Scarce in this condition.

A Night to Remember is a highly regarded non-fiction book that depicts the sinking of the RMS Titanic on 15 April 1912. The book was hugely successful and is still considered a definitive resource about the Titanic. Walter Lord interviewed many survivors of the disaster as well as drawing on books, memoirs, and articles that they had written. Still the best general account of the Titanic disaster, and the basis of Roy Ward Baker's memorable feature film  starring Kenneth More from 1958.

Inside the pages are clean, bright and tightly bound with no writing or other markings of previous ownership. Has diagrams of the ship as endpapers. There is some very mild tanning here being offsetting from the jacket. Richly illustrated with a number of black and white photos. The top edge is tinted dark blue. Also includes a passenger list and some facts about the Titanic at the end of the book.

In the original colourful dust wrapper which has also remained in very good condition. Unclipped, bright and un-faded with just a few slight creases and some small nicks along the top edge.

Your vintage first UK edition of A Night to Remember will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon and sent well packaged. I am always happy to add a gift card with a message to the parcel.

H 22.5 cm x W 16 cm, 188 pages, 0.46 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. With the exception of a small number of countries.
