Not quite sure I can help you recover it, but, I have some very
paranoid settings in my .emacs to avoid just this situation. If you
don't have something like the following, adding them will prevent such
tragedies in the future.

(custom-set-variables
  ;; custom-set-variables was added by Custom.
  ;; If you edit it by hand, you could mess it up, so be careful.
  ;; Your init file should contain only one such instance.
  ;; If there is more than one, they won't work right.
 '(auto-save-interval 100)              ;backups every 100 keystrokes
...)

;; Backups to central location
(setq make-backup-files      t          ;backup my files
      backup-by-copying      t          ;don't clobber symlinks
      backup-directory-alist '(("." . "~/.emacs.d/saves")) ;don't litter
      delete-old-versions    t
      kept-new-versions      6
      kept-old-versions      2
      version-control        t          ;use versioned backups
      vc-make-backup-files   t          ;make backups for cvs projects
      vc-follow-symlinks     t)
