A rare pamphlet contains a speech of an Austrian geologist and earthquake specialist Rudolf Hoernes (1850-1912) held on April 20th 1895 on the Earthquake of Ljubljana, Slovenia, which hit the city on the Easter Sunday six day before.
The devastating earthquake was the strongest in the modern history of Ljubljana and it destroyed a large section of the city. A large part of Ljubljana was rebuilt around 1900 and in the beginning of the 20th century.
Rudolf Hoernes was a professor at the University of Graz. He is mostly known for his work on the earthquakes, which he divided into various categories.
The pamphlet is rare. We could find 6 examples in Slovenian libraries, 3 in Austrian libraries and three abroad (Natural History Museum, London, The British Library, Biblioteca Civica di Rovereto).
