Product Description

White Star Line used several different covers on their passenger lists with styles changing every few years or so in keeping with the styles of the era.  19th Century lists have a very 19th Century feel to the fonts and artwork.  If you want a great list for your collection, this is one to have.  It is for Cymric’s voyage from Liverpool to Boston, October 17, 1911.  Captain Howarth in command.

What’s really important is that this list is positively dripping Olympic and Titanic.  First off, the ship’s surgeon is J.E. Simpson, who was sadly lost on Titanic.  Additionally, Titanic is listed on page one as having been launched on May 31.  She is listed in the sailing schedule 4 times for voyages from April 10 through June 12–crossings she was destined never to make….

There is a full-page tipped-in ad for Olympic that lists all the superb amenities on the vessel, which has “strengthened the Southampton service.”  This ad also mentions Titanic as having been “launched at Belfast on May 31st and is now rapidly completing prior to taking her place in this service.”  Lastly, the list ends with another full-page ad for Olympic and Titanic “The Largest Steamers in the World.”

Note also the sailing schedule which shows Olympic’s long absence because of her collision with the HMS Hawks,  Titanic’s maiden voyage having been put back to April 10 rather than her earlier scheduled March crossing.

The passenger has kindly filled in the chart on the back with knots covered.  Excellent condition.
