Mexico City: Imprenta de Antonio Vanegas, Calle de Santa Teresa núm. 1, [1906]. 1st Printing. Broadsheet, 2 columns of text each side, with broad single-rule border. Large, quarter-page Posada woodcut to recto top left, depicting a crowd, peering up at telegraph/telephone lines, on a street corner, with buildings in the background. While obviously not depicting the San Francisco tragedy, no doubt this broadsheet quickly put to press, and a stock engraving used to adorn the item. 11-1/8" x 7-7/8". Now housed in an archival mylar sleeve. Age-toning to paper. Very minor edgewear. A VG+ example of this rare survivor. Item #47363
