Chicago: Laird & See, 1906. Item #454
8vo. 190 x 130 mm., [7 1/4 x 5 inches]. 186 pp. Illustrated throughout with half-tone photo reproductions. Original decorated printed wrappers; edges and spine of wrappers chipped, but sound and not an unattractive copy.
Profusely illustrated with characteristic pictures of the horrible storm of fire and flames -- many fascinating and terrible scenes of falling buildings, government troops dynamiting mammoth steel structures, escaping refugees and other interesting views of the appalling havoc wrought by the earthquake in San Francisco, Santa Rosa, San Jose, Napa and other California cities.
"With sorrow for the dead, pity and sympathy for the injured, hope for those who have been stricken with poverty, and full confidence in the ability of the people of San Francisco and other unfortunate towns to replace in magnificent newness all that has been destroyed, this tragic tale of weird events following the dawn of the memorable 18th of April, 1906, is respectfully dedicated."
