I'd like to nominate two books:

1. A Thousand Miles Up the Nile by Amelia Edwards. An excellent Victorian travelogue of a journey through Egypt in the mid 19th century. Amelia Edwards is the real person on whom Elizabeth Peters' "Amelia Peabody" is based.

2. A Night to Remember by Walter Lord. The classic first-hand account of the sinking of the Titanic.
