    What would be the value of the book:
    Sinking of the Titanic and Great Sea Disasters, copyright 1912 by L. T. Myers.

    This book was written by Logan Marshall, not L.T.Myers (they are the publishers). In fine condition it might fetch up to £50, but a poor copy might fetch only £2 or £3. Worn out examples of this book are very common in America. As usual it all depends on condition.

    Hello Christopher,

    I have a framed print of the Titanic by L M Charlton.
    It is signed by Millvina Dean and Edith Haisman.
    In the bottom left hand corner it says Special Limited Edition Museum Essue April 10th 1995
    no40/850
    signed by L M Carlton
    Have you any idea how much this would be worth?

    Thankyou

    Janet

    If it’s an original copy, examples in good condition make between £60-100 at auction. However, that edition of the newspaper was subsequently reprinted as a souvenir and have little or no resale value.
