Book Condition: Fair


The story of the Halifax Explosion, a tragedy that took place on December 6, 1917, and which was, until the detonation of atomic bombs, the most powerful man-made explosion in history, killing 2,000 people and injuring 9,000 more. 120 pages, including five-and-a-half pages of advertisements and "Descriptions That may Aid in Identification of Unclaimed Unidentified Bodies Which Have Been Interred." Illustrated w/60 photographs. No map. While relatively tight internally, this has a number of issues, including some soil, a bit of water damage, chipping, large pieces missing from spine, turned corners, and a cover that, without careful handling, won't be hanging on forever. All in all a fragile piece of Canadian history, but an extremely scarce one.
