Seit jeher waren Schiffe wichtige Transportmittel. Sie ermöglichten die Entdeckung fremder Kontinente sowie den Kultur- und Warentransfer zwischen den Völkern. Diese enge Beziehung zwischen Mensch und Schiff führte zu imponierenden Höchstleistungen im Schiffbau.

Ocean Liners : An Illustrated History

The growth of the ocean liner was driven not only by political and social changes, and developments in marine technology and design but also by increased competition as new companies were established to meet the demands of travellers.
The story starts in the ninetheenth century with the greatest migration ever seen.
Communications around the world were also rapidly improving with the introduction of railways, the opening of the Suez Canal, a universal postal system and, most importantly, the laying of undersea telegraph cables.

Tourism as we know it took off in the 1870s and 1880s. This was also a time of colonial expansion which would see Britain and other countries establishing empires around the world.
To meet the demand, passenger ships became increasingly important with great advances being made not only in ship design but also marine engineering. These technological innovations soon included the introduction not only of the turbine but also diesel engines.
Ocean liners also became statements of national pride and artistic achievements.

The story concludes in the 1960s when, despite increasing numbers of travellers choosing to fly rather than travel by sea, a final flurry of liners were built, many of which had shorter lives than planned. The unique text is supported by over 250 carefully chosen photographs, many of which have never been seen before.
A truly unique and evocative book for merchant ship enthusiasts and historians.

The Liner - Retrospective and Renaissance

The iconic ocean liner, with its towering dark hull and brilliant white superstructure, remains a powerful symbol of human endeavor. This unique two-hundred-year retrospective takes us from the liner's origins in mail services to its role as nineteenth-century mass transportation, in wartime and in immigration to the New World, and finally to its modern renaissance in the Queen Mary 2, the first liner to be built in thirty years. With cruising now a major tourist industry, this new liner has emerged with a clear stylistic lineage from some of the most illustrious vessels of the past.

Along with the design and construction of established favorites and lesser-known ships, The Liner explores the human story of the engineers, builders, crew, and passengers. Illustrated throughout with photographs, artworks, and plans, some specially commissioned, this is an essential work for all liner enthusiasts, maritime historians, and anyone who has sailed aboard these fine vessels.

Floating Palaces - The Great Atlantic Liners

From the mid-1890s a race was on between the merchant navies of the recently unified Germany, Britain and France. That race was to make the most luxurious and fastest ocean liners and it started with the Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse, the first of fourteen four-stackers built between 1897 and 1921. The large vessels that followed each tried to outdo the previous one in terms of size and interior design.

Using many of the most famous of interior designers, every part of the new ships was 'designed', from the cutlery to the china, from the furniture to the paneling, and from the bedrooms to the boat decks. Through Kronprinzessin Cecilie, Mauretania, Aquitania, Olympic, Titanic, Imperator, Vaterland, Ile de France, and Paris, the development and design of the ships grew grander and more luxurious.

The process continued into the 1930s, with the Empress of Britain and the fabulously Art Deco Normandie, the finest and most expensive liner ever built, and designed to be a showcase for all that was France, as well as with the Queen Mary, a rather more traditional vessel, but one, nonetheless, which pushed the boundaries of design away from the traditional country house look of the Edwardian era. Each new vessel brought with it the finest of interiors, from the plush and palatial to the modern look of the time.

Even today, the influence of these floating palaces can still be seen in vessels such as Cunard's Queen Mary 2 and the multitude of new cruise vessels, all vying for the public's interest and affection.
The large liners were truly floating palaces, and here, William H. Miller brings together a collection of fabulous images of the finest ships ever built, showcasing the style and elegance of a time when 'getting there was half the fun'.

Great Mediterranean Passenger Ships

t is hard to think of the passenger liners from the golden era of Mediterranean cruising without also conjuring the nostalgic, dream-like vision of azure-blue waters, bright sunshine and swimming pools with clusters of umbrellas and sunbathing passengers.

The great age of Mediterranean passenger liners began in the 1920s when the Italians built their first big ships, such as the Augustus, Saturnia and Conte Grande. In the 1930s, things got really interesting with the creation of the superliners Rex and Conte di Savoia.
In the 1950s and '60s, as Italy built a huge post-war fleet, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Turkey and Israel commissioned their biggest ships yet.

William Miller has written ninety books on passenger ships and is an acknowledged world expert in his field.
Full of colour and the first-hand memories of passengers and crew, this endearing reflection on the majestic world of Mediterranean travel cannot be missed. Quick, the whistles are sounding!

Great Passenger Ships: 1920-1930

Celebrating the majestic passenger liners of the twenties, "Great Passenger Ships 1920-1930" looks at well-loved ships, such as Majestic, Olympic, Berengaria, Viceroy of India and Rawalpindi, alongside lesser known but still fascinating vessels.

The 1920s have become a fabled era for ocean liners, a period of growth and opulence as companies began recovery after the First World War. As the decade went on plans were drawn for great superliners, until the Wall Street Crash changed the world. During the 1920s, the German Imperator became Berengaria for Cunard, Columbus became Homeric for White Star and Bismarck was renamed Majestic for White Star, becoming the line's most popular ship.

Cunard, White Star and P&O had great success while the likes of Orient Line, Union Steamship Company, Union Castle and Furness- Bermuda Line all added their own ships to the mix during these golden days of ocean travel.

Featuring unpublished photographs in a stunning colour section, "Great Passenger Ships 1920-1930" showcases the zenith of ocean travel in the 1920s.
This series follows ships serving all over the world rather than just famed Atlantic liners, with personal anecdotes of the ships and their voyages from passengers and crew alike.

Great Passenger Ships 1930-1940

The 1930s was perhaps the most glamorous and exciting decade for the great liners, highlighted by ferocious international shipbuilding rivalry: Germany's Bremen and Europa, Italy's Rex and Conte Di Savoia, France's Normandie and Britain's Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth.

Passengers travelled on some of the most popular liners of all time, such as L'Atlantique, Empress of Britain, Empress of Japan, Queen of Bermuda, President Coolidge, Strathnaver and Strathaird, Orion, Capetown Castle, Oranje, Mauretania, Andes, and many more.

As this book recounts, despite the worldwide Depression and a great shift in trading patterns, it was a wonderful decade for shipbuilding and the era of art deco on the high seas - the age of 'floating Ginger Rogers'.

Great Passenger Ships 1950-1960

The 1950s was a fascinating decade for the great liners. After the global devastation of two decades of war and Depression, shipyards were creating one new liner after another, it seemed, to rebuild and renew passenger ship services all over the world. There were the likes of the Kungsholm and Oslofjord from Scandinavia, the French Flandre and a succession of new liners from P&O-Orient, the Italian Line, Messageries Maritimes and many more.

The new hopeful era of the 1950s was highlighted by such brilliant, headline-making ships as the speedy United States, breaking records on an unprecedented scale, the engines-aft Southern Cross and the mastless Orsova. Showcased beautifully by the stunning images and nostalgic outlook of prolific maritime historian William H. Miller, this book shines a well-earned spotlight on some of the world's most popular passenger liners.
