Rare Kootenay Map Acquired by Yale University

The Nelson Star reports on the purchase of a rare copy of Perry's Mining Map of the Southern Dist., West Kootenay. (Rand, McNally & Co., 1893) Described by dealer Barry Lawrence Ruderman as, "one of the earliest obtainable printed maps to focus on the Kootenay mining regions," and only the fifth known copy, the 40 x 26" full-colour map will become part of Yale's Western Americana Collection.
