Carpathia, the liner that was captained by Arthur Rostron and was responsible for the rescue of all Titanic surviving passengers and crew. The photo was taken by Carpathia passenger Louis Ogden and shows a number of those individuals saved including Molly Brown, Frederick Fleet and Quartermaster Robert Hichens holding the tiller, whilst appearing to be wrapped in a blanket. A reference copy of a letter to Mr Ogden from Archibald Gracie relating to his photographs is included in the lot 5½ins. x 4ins.
243.    R.M.S. TITANIC: Extremely rare photo of an oddly-shaped 'blueberg' photographed by the Captain of the S.S. Etonian. The image shows a massive iceberg with a very odd elliptical shape, and is captioned in black ink. "Iceberg taken by Captain Wood SS Etonian in 41°50N 49°50W April 12th at 4pm 1913 (sic) Titanic struck April 14th and sank in 3 hours". The significance of this photo is heightened by an original handwritten letter by Captain Wood written on board SS Etonian to the vendor's great grandfather Billy Tucker who as a young man wrote to Wood regarding the matter of photography. Wood states "I am sending you a sea picture the Etonian running before a gale and the iceberg that sank the Titanic. We crossed the ice tracks 40hrs before her and in daylight so saw the ice easily and I got a picture". The second image Wood refers to of the Etonian in a gale is included in the lot.
Unfortunately, there is no surviving photograph of the iceberg taken from Titanic's deck that night. Several photographs of the icebergs in Titanic's vicinity taken before and after the collision have been offered throughout the years as candidates for the iceberg which sunk the ship.
Fredrick Fleet, the lookout on duty who first spotted the iceberg, and Joseph Scarrott, an able-bodied seaman, each drew sketches of the iceberg which appear similar to the iceberg in this photo. Their drawings are reproduced on pages 140-141 of Titanic: "Triumph and Tragedy", Second Edition, by John P. Eaton and Charles A. Haas (W.W. Norton & Company, 1955). A "Blueberg" as indicated in the caption simply refers to the tinting of the iceberg from the sun's rays, much like the "blue" ocean. It bears a resemblance to images drawn by Titanic's lookout and crewman. 5ins. x 4ins. £8000-12000

Original oversize photograph taken from The Prinz Adalbert on the days after the Titanic disaster of an iceberg thought by some to have been the culprit that sank Titanic.

The following archive is sold by direct descent and has never been auctioned or offered for sale remaining in the Lowe family since 1912. Harold Lowe was without doubt one of the heroes of the Titanic disaster, his heroic actions having been portrayed in numerous books and films, most recently by Ioan Gruffudd in James Cameron's blockbuster Titanic.

Harold Godfrey Lowe was born in Llanrhos, Caernarvonshire, Wales on 21st November 1882, the fourth of eight children, to George and Harriet. His father had ambitions for him to be apprenticed to a successful Liverpool businessman, but Harold was determined to go to sea. At 14, he ran away from home and joined the Merchant Navy, serving along the West African Coast. Starting as a Ship's Boy aboard the Welsh coastal schooners as he worked to progress his career. In 1906 he gained his second mate's certificate, and 1908 he his first mate's. In his own words, "experience with pretty well every ship afloat" - the different classes of ships afloat - from the schooner to the square-rigged sailing vessel, and from that to steamships, and of all sizes. He served as Third Officer on the Belgic and the Tropic before being transferred to Titanic as Fifth Officer in 1912. Despite his numerous years at sea, the maiden voyage of the Titanic was to be his first transatlantic crossing.

After Titanic's collision with the iceberg he portrayed a cool and calm demeanour under pressure. Before and during loading of lifeboats it is said he ordered J. Bruce Ismay, Managing Director White Star Line, to get out of his way. "If you will get the hell out of that then I shall be able to do something. Do you want me to lower away quickly? You will have me drown the lot of them".

He left Titanic on lifeboat no. 14. After his crew rowed approx. 150 yards from the sinking, Lowe herded five lifeboats together and redistributed passengers from lifeboat 14 into those other lifeboats. Once the cries of those in the water subsided and he deemed it safe to return, he went back to the wreck site to pick up any survivors, the prime lifeboat to do so. Harold Lowe remained at sea after the sinking but never achieved the command of a ship in the Mercantile Service, although during WWI he was made the rank of commander in the Royal Navy Reserve.

A unique exceptional early 20th century telescope given to Fifth Officer Lowe by Mrs Henry Harris, a Titanic survivor, in recognition of his bravery. The telescope is engraved "To Harold G. Lowe Fifth Officer R.M.S. Titanic, The Real Hero of the Titanic with deepest gratitude from Mrs Henry B Harris of New York April 1912".

268.    R.M.S. TITANIC: Rare oversized Fred Pansing advertising oilette of Titanic/Olympic
Fred Pansing was an official White Star Line artist who painted images of ships to hang in company offices, ticket offices and for promotional purposes. Many of his images, including this one, were made as standard-sized postcards. Pansing lived in Hoboken, New Jersey, which was across the Hudson from White Star Line's New York offices in Manhattan.
The oversized advertising poster offered here is known as an oilette, a printing process used by its inventor, Raphael Tuck, who operated a successful postcard printing business in London. This process allows the printed work to appear as an oil painting, even appearing to contain brush strokes from the original painting from which the print was made. Interestingly, Tuck, an observant Jew, is credited with creating the first mass-produced Christmas card. The print is signed by Pansing in the lower right and is backed on board by Galindo Mfg. Co. of New York which was a framer of antique prints in the early part of the 20th Century. The original hanging wire is intact making this piece ready for display.
This is an oversize official White Star Line commissioned piece produced prior to Titanic's maiden voyage and as such is extremely desirable and one of the rarer Olympic class related posters. 15½ins. x 10½ins.
269.    R.M.S. TITANIC: Exceptional Isidor and Ida Straus family journal.
This must be seen to be truly appreciated. The journal measures 14ins. x 12ins. x 4ins. and is beautifully embossed on its black leather cover in gilt, "IN MEMORIAM-Isidor and Ida Straus."
The journal contains not only hundreds of newspaper clippings and photos relating to the Titanic disaster affixed to its pages by the Straus family, many of which are personally captioned in type, but it also includes two extremely rare memorial programmes dedicated to both Isidor and Ida. Most memorials we have seen either only mention Isidor or refer to Ida in smaller type. The book is expertly crafted with fine satin end pages, gilded edges and heavy pages, the quality of which one would expect from the Straus family. Included in the book, but separate from it, is the Straus Family Tree and an original receipt from Woodlawn Cemetery (where Isidor Straus is buried) relating to Stuart Scheftel, the Straus grandson.
It is well known that Isidor Straus was the owner of Macy's Department store in New York and that Isidor and Ida refused to leave each other while Titanic was sinking. Neither survived. Their story has been told and re-told in countless books and films.
The front cover of the book is detached from the remainder of the binding but this is not noticeable when closed. £20000-30000
270.    R.M.S. TITANIC: Superb on board archive relating to R.M.S. Titanic Second-Class bedroom steward Edward Stone. Edward did not survive the disaster and his body was recovered #243 by Mackay-Bennett. The collection includes a handwritten letter on watermarked Titanic stationery dated Thursday April 11th over two sides. It reads in part -
'My darling wife, we did try to cause some excitement before we left. I don't know whether you see it (sic) It's very nice weather I don't think this will be the crowning trip. Anyhow we'll do the best we can trusting we shall bring something good from the other side. Ta ta sweetheart. With all of my fondest love to my dear little wife. Yours ever your loving husband Ted'. With original envelope with indistinct Queenstown and later Southampton postmark 3pm. 12th April 1912.
The collection also includes the original certified extract to the death of a seaman confirming Mr Stone was one of those lost in the Titanic disaster, his original marriage certificate and original photos of Ted and his wife. (12 Items).
271.    R.M.S. TITANIC: Superb Montague Birrel Black White Star Line "Olympic & Titanic." agent's poster. It shows an exceptional artistic rendition of the Titanic/Olympic, completed before the ship was officially launched. This image was clearly a favourite of the White Star Line publicity department, as it appeared on numerous forms of promotional material, including a postcard (issued some time in 1910) announcing that the Olympic had been launched on "Oct. 20, 1910" and that the Titanic, which was currently being built at Belfast, would "be in commission 1911." The image appeared on menus, advertisements, a Second-Class passenger list on the Titanic and the cover of a 1911 souvenir edition of the Shipbuilder. This is an extremely rare poster, with only a few copies having been offered for auction over the past 25 years. Once the Titanic sank on April 15th, 1912, the White Star Line would have destroyed as many of these posters as they could. A further fascinating addendum to the poster is the fact that enquiries are directed to Thomas Cook and Son, one of the oldest and most iconic travel agents in the British Travel Industry. Sadly the company closed its doors in 2019. Framed and glazed 40ins. x 25ins.
272.    R.M.S. TITANIC: Rare postcard written on board the Titanic by second class passenger Thomas Mudd aged 17. The card actually mentions the Titanic by name. It is written to his mother Mrs Thomas Mudd, The Street, Huntingfield, Halesworth, Suffolk. Reads in full -
"Dear Mother, Arrived at Southampton safe The Titanic is a splendid boat + you hardly know you are moving. Will write more fully later. Your loving son Tom - ps Please send Edie's address also send Her (sic) this card as I do not know it". Stamps removed so postmark incomplete. The card itself is a Tuck's Oilette Celebrated Liners Series No 9898. Mr Mudd was travelling to Radnor, Pennsylvania and did not survive the disaster. £4000-6000
273.    R.M.S. TITANIC: John W. Gill pocket penknife - Hoyland, Hull. Stainless steel with bone handle. 4ins. Provenance Gill archive by descent that was found on the body of Mr Gill when his body No. 155 was recovered by the Mackay-Bennett.
The John Gill Archive. This collection was offered for sale at Henry Aldridge & Son and was one of the rarest and most complete to be offered in recent years. It charted the correspondence between The White Star Line and John William Gill's wife of only two months Sarah Elizabeth Winifred. The archive sold for over £130,000 in 2002, and was sold via direct descent from second class passenger Gill R.M.S. Titanic Ticket Number 233866. Sarah Elizabeth Hodder had married John Gill on the 14th February 1912. Two months later Mr Gill perished on the Titanic. He also had tickets for his wife and her father to join him, but due to outstanding commitments neither could travel at the time and were to follow on later.
The following items were found on Mr Gill's person when his body No. 155 was recovered by the Mackay-Bennett.
Gold Watch and chain, silver match box, $43 in notes, $4.60 in United States silver, 65c in United States nickels, 9 shillings in silver, 7 pence in copper, gold ring, initials J.W.G., pocket knife, pocket comb in case, case containing leads for pencil, collar stud, pocket book with few miscellaneous papers, punch keys, letter addressed to Mrs J W Gill.

NB: The Gill Archive was sold by Henry Aldridge & Son in April 2002 & is still widely regarded as one of the most complete collections of Titanic material attributed to one passenger.

274.    R.M.S. TITANIC: A rare sterling silver mug inscribed "To Captain Rostron As a Token of Grateful Appreciation of His Kindness on the Carpathia after the sinking of the Titanic April 15th 1912 from John B Thayer Jr", the underside marked with sterling silver marks and maker's name Bailey Banks & Biddle prominent Philadelphia Silver Smiths & Retailers 2½ins.
Thayer aged nineteen, jumped into the sea as the ship went down and managed to scramble aboard the upturned collapsible B. At dawn they managed to transfer to lifeboat twelve and were rescued by the Carpathia. It is said he didn't even notice his mother alongside in the lifeboat number four and Mrs Thayer was so numbed by cold and misery that she didn't see her son. Her husband, his father John B Thayer perished in the disaster. He was Second Vice President of The Pennsylvania Railroad and one of the millionaires travelling on the ship. This mug was purchased by the vendor alongside the Tiffany gold watch, presented to Captain Rostron by Mrs John Jacob Astor, which was previously sold by Henry Aldridge & Son for £68,000.
275.    R.M.S. TITANIC: A 1906 US silver half dollar, recovered from the body of Titanic victim John W. Gill. Gill was a Second-Class passenger travelling to America to seek a new life and home for him and his wife, who remained in England. Perishing in the cold waters of the North Atlantic, Gill's body was the 155th body recovered by the Mackay-Bennett, eventually being buried at sea. Numerous objects were recovered from his body and catalogued before being returned to his widow, including this silver piece, all of which were included in the inventory list prepared by the provincial coroner of Nova Scotia. Sarah Gill was never able to bring herself to spend the money and retained it with his other effects including his pocket watch, keys, ring, and additional money and everything remained with the family for 90 years. All of the possessions recovered from Gill were sold in the April 2002 Henry Aldridge & Son Titanic 90th anniversary auction.
Spending £13 for his ticket, Gill was supposed to be joined on the voyage by his wife and father-in-law to start a new life in America, but he travelled alone when Sarah and her father stayed behind to complete their business, while intending to join John later that year. Married for only two months when he died, his wife fell in to such a state of shock that she was unable to speak for over 20 years. A heart-wrenching relic of a young couple's promising future shattered by the tragedy of April 15th, 1912.
The coin is presented in a high-quality frame with details of Mr Gill and copies of Titanic postcards.
