According to Henry Wagner, The Cartography of the Northwest Coast of America to the Year 1800, John Green issued "destructive criticism" against Delisle maps of 1750; these "remarks were issued to accompany A New Chart of North and South America..., which was published in his behalf by Thomas Jefferys" (vol. 1, p. 160). Described by Wagner, vol. 1, p. 343: "Engraved map on three sheets published June 10, 1775.... In Jefferys, The American Atlas, London, 1776.... No Delisle geography except the various entrances." Donated by Dr. John Morse, Hamilton, September 1997.
