RMS Majestic: The ‘Magic Stick’ second edition
RMS Majestic: The ‘Magic Stick’ was published by Tempus Publishing in November 2006. Unfortunately, the initial print run soon sold out and, following a change of ownership of the publisher, it was never reprinted. For years, it has been rare to come across a second hand copy. One was even advertised on Amazon UK for the grand total of £3,827.24 (plus postage) in 2014!
The good news is that this much sought after book is being released as a revised and expanded edition by the History Press. The original book consisted of 96 pages and this has been increased to 144 pages, with new information and rare illustrations (particularly relating to her time as the naval training ship HMS Caledonia). There is an extensive colour section with previously unpublished images and deck plans. It is anticipated that the new edition will be available in spring 2024.
We will keep you posted. This blog will be updated as soon as signed copies are directly available, so stay tuned.
