Paquebot "Normandie" (Le), L'Illustration, no. 4813bis, illustrations, many colour, original wrappers printed in red, black & gold, Paris, June 1935; and 7 menus from 1961 for Compagnie Générale Transatlantique French Line Liberté with colour illustrations by Jean-Adrien Mercier, folio (8) ⁂ SS Normandie was a French ocean liner built by the Compagnie Générale Transatlantique. With lavish Art Deco interiors she was launched in 1935 as the largest and fastest passenger ship afloat, and to this day remains the most powerful steam turbo-electric-propelled passenger ship ever built. She held the Blue Riband title for fastest transatlantic crossing several times, rivalling the Queen Mary. She came to an ignominious end when she caught fire and sank while being converted to a troop ship in New York in 1942.
