The additional number of The Shipbuilder entirely devoted to the Cunard Line’s Quadruple- Screw Mail and Passenger Steamship Aquitania, which has recently entered the Atlantic service, was published on the 26th June, and copies were immediately despatched to newsagents and our regular subscribers.
By arrangement with the Cunard Steamship Co., Limited, the owners of the vessel, and Messrs. John Brown & Co., Limited, the builders of both the ship and her propelling machinery, who placed full data at our disposal, this issue contains a complete technical description of the vessel, her Parsons turbine propelling machinery, and auxiliaries, and includes about 200 plans and drawings, coloured and black and white illustrations of the ship, her passenger accommodation, etc., etc.
The special Aquitania Souvenir Number is by far the fullest and most authentic account published of this epoch-making steamship, the largest so far built in Great Britain. We anticipated that this issue would be permanently regarded as an authoritative work of reference concerning heT construction and equipment; and from the opinions expressed by those who are well able to judge, this anticipation is likely to be fully realized.
In the preparation of this issue we have followed on the general lines of the Mauretania and Olympic Souvenir Numbers, published in 1907 and 1911 respectively, and copies of which are still being sold by us all over the world. We desire to take this opportunity to thank our numerous readers who have written expressing their high appreciation of the Aquitania Souvenir Number since we have found it impossible to write to each personally.
Although the Aquitania Number, at the time of writing, was only published a few days ago, some thousands of copies have already been sold, and the edition is rapidly becoming exhausted. To prevent disappointment.
