BUILD YOUR OWN TITANIC: The World on the Move.
Edition: First edition.
New York: Perigee Books / Putnam, (1981.). First edition - An unused and uncut copy of this cut-and-assemble book which promises "hours of fun for the ambitious modeler" -only 42 steps - and which is (according to the back cover) an "exact reduced scale reproduction of one of the most legendary ocean liners ever to sail the seas ...printed in full, authentic color on sturdy card stock containing step-by-step, illustrated instructions, an exploding diagram and clearly numbered pieces for easy assembly. Included, too, is an introduction that explains the sad history and unique features of this renowned ship which went to the bottom of the Atlantic on its maiden voyage. Here's a fascinating way to raise the Titanic that will ultimately result in a beautiful dsiplay of one wonder of the world on the move". When completed (although this is not recommended, since it would destroy the value of this rather uncommon Titanic item), the ship would be almost 4 feet long. Even the 'tip of the iceberg' is included. Introduction by Charles A. Haas, president of the Titanic Historical Society. Large format, unpaginated. ISBN: 0-399-505644.
Condition: Very near fine in stiff illustrated wrappers.
