About this Item: George Rice & Sons, 1906. Paperback. Condition: Collectible: Very Good. First Edition. 6 1/4 x 4 1/2 inches. Unpaginated. The text consists of 22 black-and-white photographic panels, with captions, printed on both sides; text clean, unmarked. Fully opened, the photographic panels measure 46 x 6 inches. Bound in red printed wrappers, yapp edges, the contents tipped-in inside the rear cover; shelf wear, especially at the edges. SCARCE. Very Good. This edition was printed soon after the disaster of April 18, 1906. It consists of a series of captioned photographs of San Francisco, especially street scenes and images of buildings destroyed during the earthquake. Of the total 22 panels, 6 make up a "Panorama, San Francisco Harbor Before the Earthquake and Fire" with tall ships, steamers, and the ferry building clearly visible. The San Francisco earthquake of 1906 was a major earthquake that struck San Francisco and the coast of Northern California at 5:12 am on Wednesday, April 18, 1906. Devastating fires broke out in the city and lasted for several days. As a result of the quake and fires, about 3,000 people died and over 80 percent of San Francisco was destroyed. The earthquake and resulting fire are remembered as one of the worst natural disasters in the history of the United States alongside the Galveston Hurricane of 1900 and Hurricane Katrina in 2006. The death toll from the earthquake and fire is the greatest loss of life from a natural disaster in California's history. Scarce: This is the only copy currently in the trade; Worldcat records 6 copies in institutions. Seller Inventory # SGG213B-22
