Scarce alternate issue of this first Rand McNally pocket map of British Columbia. The main area of the map depicts the lower two-thirds of the province, with geological features shaded and districts outlined in red. An inset at upper right shows the upper portion of the province that neighbors Alaska. Nine railroads in the Vancouver and Victoria area are delineated in black and numbered in red, with a key printed in red at lower right. The text contains a detailed index and several advertisements for other Rand McNally publications. The wrapper title, Rand McNally & Co.'s Indexed Pocket Map and Shippers' Guide of British Columbia, differs from that of the two copies recorded by OCLC at Cornell and the University of Texas. A third copy at Yale seems to lack wrappers and index. A scarce pocket map in alternate wrappers.
