Description du livre G. P. Putnam's Sons, New York, 1961. Hardcover. État : Good. No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. ".Today. except for a few maritime antiquarians or those to whom this event might hold some especial personal significance, the Collins liner Arctic has all but been forgotten.When the final word of her loss reached her home port of New York (in 1854) a fortnight after the collision which sent her to the bottom, the effect was utterly catastrophic. Business came to a standstill and the city went into total mourning. Flags flew at half staff and offices were bedecked with crepe. All courts and legislative bodies were adjourned as a mark of public respect to the many bereaved members of the community. Ministers made the Arctic subject of impassioned sermons. Like the Titanic, the Arctic, although only a third as long and capable of taking but one-tenth as many passengers, was the queen of the transatlantic fleets of her day. Virtually brand-new, this ultramodern wooden side-wheel American steamer was inferior to none afloat. she had already made the record for the fastest west-east crossing of the Atlantic and she commanded the elite of transoceanic travelers. The Arctic sailed at the peak of renown of the United States Merchant Marine. Her tragic loss, coupled with the disappearance at sea of her sister ship, the Pacific, two years later, unfortunately brought to an end the shaky existence of the Collins Line. This hastened the regrettable decline from which our fleets, receiving insurmountable persecution by Confederate raiders during the American Civil War, did not recover for almost a full century.This is the story of that turning point more than a century ago - nautically speaking, a bitter descent from Olympus." 255 pages with index. Book is in GOOD condition. No dust jacket. N° de réf. du libraire 005124
