Notes: Table of contents covers eight chapters, but pt. 1 contains chapters 1-3 only. No more published.
Rich, Sabin, and the Carter Brown catalogue, following Gentleman's magazine, 1755, v. 25, p. 238, state that this work is principally taken from G.M. Butel-Dumont's Histoire et commerce des colonies angloises dans l'Amérique Septentrionale, 1755. The two are somewhat similar in plan, the French work having eight chapters, as Huske's was planned to have, but the headings of the chapters are entirely different, and though the same facts are sometimes made use of by the two writers, their points of view are directly opposed to each other. cf. Bancroft, v. 5, 1852, p. 170.
In the same year, 1755, Dodsley published a second edition of Huske's pamphlet "with emendations" containing also: "A new and accurate map of North America ... Inscribed to the Honorable Charles Townshend ... by ... [John] Huske. Tho: Kitchin sculp. Published for the Present state of North America &c. and sold by R. & I. Dodsley in Pall Mall 1755." A detached copy of this map is found in L.C.
