About this Item

12mo., (3 3/8 x 5 ¼ inches). Original publisher's printed wrappers, with engraving of the Hotel on the front cover (one or two pale stains). First edition. Promotional folding card for the Palace Hotel, with three pages of text inside. Inner front cover: "The Palace Hotel, occupying an entire block in the center of San Francisco, is the model Hotel of the World. It has double the accommodations of any other Hotel in the City. It is thoroughly Fire and Earthquake-proof, has five broad, easy stairways, and five elevators. Every Room is extra large, light and airy. The system of ventilation is perfect, combining flue from fire-place, inlet flue for fresh air from outside, and outlet flue to the roof. A bath and closet adjoin every room. All rooms are easy of access from broad, light corridors, leading from the glass-covered court in the center of the building. The central court illuminated by the electric light, its immense glass roof, broad balconies around it on every story, its carriage way and its tropical plants, is an attractive feature; one hitherto unknown in American Hotels. Guests entertained on either the American or European plan. The Restaurant is an adjunct to the Hotel, and is the finest in the City." Despite these assurances that the Hotel is fire- and earthquake-proof, the hotel was destroyed during the San Francisco earthquake of 1906. It managed to survive the initial damage from the tremors, by late afternoon it was consumed by the fires that followed. A "New" Palace Hotel was built on the site of its razed predecessor and opened in 1909, where it still stands today. Bookseller Inventory # 72MMS201
