Swann Auction Galleries of New York City will offer a chance to own a piece of history from some of the most famous ships of all time, including the Titanic, Andrea Doria, Normandie and Lusitania.

These and other important items will be offered Dec. 1 in the Printed & Manuscript Americana Sale/Ocean Liner Memorabilia Sale.

One of the top lots is the rare copy of the Plan of First Class Accommodation from the Titanic (estimate: $12,000-$18,000). In addition to a number of other items from the ship, Swann is making available a landing (or custom) card issued to Mrs. Cassebeer onboard the steamship Carpathia after she was rescued from the Titanic disaster.

The card identifies her as being 29th on list, a saloon passenger and having embarked at Southampton on April 10, 1912 (estimate: $2,000-$3,000).
