A DEATHLESS STORY OR THE 'BIRKENHEAD' AND ITS HEROES
by A.C. Addison; W.H. Matthews
Published by Hutchinson & Co..
Good condition. Green cloth with gilt title to spine and small vignette to front cover. Being the only full and authentic account of the famous shipwreck extant, founded on collected official, documentary, and personal evidence, and containing the narratives and lives of actors in the most glorious ocean tragedy in history. B/w plates.
Covers are very heavily damp stained - so that they look almost mottled. Joints are cracked; some weakening to binding. Prize plate to front pastedown. Foxing and some page browning. Still a good reading copy.
