This sheet features two handsome maps on one sheet. At top is a map of British Columbia with excellent detail of the region's network of rivers and lakes. Numerous islands off the coast are named. The second map focuses on Vancouver Island, identifying several bays, harbors, inlets, and more that do not appear on the map above it. Drawn, engraved, and lithographed by Weller.
There are two archivally repaired edge tears that just enter the map border and very minor soiling.
