1906 1st ed San Francisco California Horror EARTHQUAKE Vesuvius Illustrated The 1906 San Francisco earthquake struck the coast of Northern California at 5:12 a.m. on Wednesday, April 18. Devastating fires broke out in the city that lasted for several days. As a result, about 3,000 people died and over 80% 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 2005. The death toll from the earthquake and resulting fire remains the greatest loss of life from a natural disaster in California’s history. We find this same first edition book for sale elsewhere for $400! This book contains numerous photographs inside the text and with the text. These illustrations display the wreckage and damage the earthquake caused to various downtown locations in San Francisco. Main author: Richard Linthicum; Trumbull White; Samuel Fallows Title: Complete story of the San Francisco horror : a comprehensive and connected account of the terrible tragedy that befell the people of our golden city–the metropolis of the Golden Gate, and the death and rain dealt many adjacent cities and surrounding country.
