The Jewel City - Ben Macomber

This book gives an overview of the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition in San Francisco. This books discusses more than the artwork, by describing the contents of the other palaces, the state buildings, and the foreign pavilions.

This book has been placed under John J. Newbegin as the publisher, yet this presents a bit of a quandry in that the book also lists this as a John W. Williams publication, and the printer was H. S. Crocker; thus the publishing business in San Francisco was rather incestous; in some ways like the current motion picture industry in Los Angeles. This is my 54th Project Guttenberg title.
