Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0811820521, Misc. Supplies)This is not a book but a sturdy, miniature cardboard replica of a steamer trunk such as one that might have gone down on Titanic, complete with mock-metal triangular corner protectors. Inside, there is a trove of reproductions of memorabilia from the Titanic Historical Society to wow anybody fascinated by the shipwreck: a first-class ticket; a "radiotelegramm" from the ship Amerika four hours before the disaster warning of icebergs; the fancy brochure passengers got; the orchestra's repertoire (including "Songe d'Automne," the last tune played); maps of each deck; menus (including that of the last night's fare--not very health-conscious food, actually); adhesive luggage stickers you can apply to your suitcase; reproductions of Titanic postcards--some with greetings that were delivered, some blank and suitable for mailing; a booklet of notes on all the luxuries available to first-class passengers; and a list of all first-class passengers to reassure one of one's high social standing. An irresistible box redolent of another era. --Tim Appelo
