United States Lines: "LEVIATHAN: The World's Greatest Ship, Volume 3", by Frank Braynard, published in 1976, hardbound with original dust jacket, 400 pages.

Braynard has created what is probably the most extensive history ever written about a single ship. His ground-breaking series covers 6 volumes.

This book is volume 3 and picks up the LEVIATHAN saga as the ship begins transatlantic service for the United States Lines in 1923 and continues through 1926.

Braynard tells the story of life aboard, prominent passengers, and her problems as a government owned ship. There are hundreds of great photos which makes for wonderful browsing and reading.

Note: Even though Frank O. Braynard submitted his volumes to the Library of Congress and received back an LOC number, there isn't a Library of Congress Catalog Entry for any of the six volumes in this series.
