The June 30, 1906 issue, the cover a Jessie Wilcox Smith color scene of 2 children gazing at a picture book held by their mother. This issue discusses "The Burnham Plan" for the future of San Francisco following the April earthquake. A full page rendering of Twin Peaks suggests a public park covering the entire summit and upper hillsides. The Civic Center was to be central, with all roads entering and crisscrossing the City leading there, then splaying out to other locations. Fireproof industrial buildings would line the waterfront with the "Grand Boulevard" running high up on their rooftops, with sufficient soil for for plantings along the edges of the road. San Franciscans could enjoy the fresh air and views from the elevated boulevard. Needless to say many aspects of Mr. Burnham's conception never became reality. Shorter articles, fiction, and poetry also appear, along with hundreds of advertisements, an amusing form of time travel. Our copy is clean and unmarked and, while fragile, still held in its cover with a 3-staple binding. Several small chips afflict the edges, and the spine has gone ragged above and below the staples. 30 pages, 10.75" x 15" [A]. Bookseller Inventory # F00142
