A scarce printed invitation to the Masquerade at San Francisco’s Lick House, held in 1870, and according to contemporary accounts, one of the major events of the holiday season in the city. The hotel, built on the corner of Sutter Street and Montgomery, was one of the finest in the city before its destruction in the 1906 fire. A very good copy, bright, with a partial tear at the fold and some wrinkling to lower margin.
