In original tan (?) printed wrappers. Octavo, i-[xvi], 192, xvii-lvi pp. plus 28 maps, many folding, and one full page illustration of a blow pipe. From the preface, "The purpose has been to give in a succinct form and with moderation of statement a description of each mining district in Washington and in Southern British Columbia, following a general description of each district with a description of each mine and the more important prospects in that district." and, concerning the maps, "But it can be said without fear of contradiction that this volume contains a more complete set of detailed maps than has yet been published and that the large map contains a mass of valuable information which has never yet reached the public". A scarce publication printed on fragile newsprint which is seldom found intact. *** Condition: Wrappers toned and cover printing somewhat faded, some small brownish staining to front cover; lower right corner chipped and two other corners with repaired chips (archival tissue on verso). Inkstamp initials on front cover and a couple preliminary pages; also, penciled name at top of front cover and following page. Abrasion with minor loss at spine ends.
