The rare five page holiday brochure for the Titanic. 'Restaurant reception room'.<br />
<br />
An exceptionally rare holiday brochure for the Titanic has surfaced at auction alongside an intact ticket for the iconic doomed liner's launch.<br />
<br />
The fascinating five page booklet was exclusively for potential first class passengers and contains images of some of the ill-fated 'White Star Line' ship's most luxurious quarters.<br />
<br />
It is being sold with an equally scarce ticket for the launch of the Titanic in Belfast on May 31, 1911 - 11 months before it hit an iceberg and sank with the loss of 1,522 lives.<br />
<br />
The front cover of the brochure is dominated by a picture of the awe-inspiring liner dwarfing other vessels in her midst with the tagline 'the largest steamer in the world'.
