The Deluxe Centenary Edition of Titanic: 100 Years Below is a collector's dream for those who want different mediums to get a sense of the tragedy. The memorabilia packet of documents and reproductions were, unfortunately, cheaply done (or dramatically reduced in size from the original) and lacked the overall quality exhibited in other reproduction sets. The outer packaging was apparently the priority for this boxed set.

When RMS Titanic set sail for New York from Southampton on 10th April 1912, she was hailed as 'unsinkable.' Then, just four days into her maiden voyage, she struck an iceberg and sank, ensuring her place in legend as the victim of history's most infamous maritime disaster.
One hundred years on from that tragic day, this extraordinary collection brings together a fascinating documentary that revisits the site of the wreck, a wonderfully illustrated book on the ship's history and an array of memorabilia beautifully recreated from original materials at The National Archives in London, England.
Also, in tribute to one of the most enduring stories remembered from that fateful night, a CD of songs from the era - "The Band Played On" - is included in this definitive collection.
