Marshall Everett - Nearer My God to Thee: The Story of the Wreck of the Titanic (The Ocean's Greatest Disaster)

L. H. Walter, 1912. First edition (aka, the "Memorial Edition"), first printing. Dark green cloth binding with pictorial cover illustration. 320 pp. Illustrated. Unprepossessing copy with extensive scuffing along edges of covers, patchy surface excoriation and fading to gilt lettering on front cover. Repaired rear hinge. General wear to textblock edges but no markings to pages. Numerous variations of this title (along with several variant sub-titles) exist, but the Memorial Edition was first, and it wasn't quite ready for publication when it was rushed to market. In a desperate bid to be the first book to capitalize on the tragedy, Nearer my God to Thee was printed just a few months after the disaster.
