Mobil travel guide. Northwest & Alaska Bothmann, Robert L 23 Jan 2005 23:58 UTC

Please reference OCLC records 46475508 and 57346281.

57346281 has been reported for deletion instructing use of 46475508.

I would like an explanation for this so I can understand why this is not
considered a title change.

The 2003 and 2004 editions of "Mobil travel guide. Northwest" do not
contain Alaska and DO contain some western Canadian provinces.

The 2005 "Mobil travel guide. Northwest & Alaska" covers Alaska, Idaho,
Oregon, and Washington, but no Canadian provinces.

Per AACR2 rule 21.2C2, the addition of Alaska to the first 5 words
constitutes a major title change. The change in content (addition of
Alaska, deletion of Canadian coverage) of the publication appears to me
to also be a major change. Also, I can't seem to make this change in
title fit any of the conditions in 21.2C2b.

Clarification, explanation would be appreciated.
