Note: Since ye beginning of this new set of maps, now compleatly finish'd; several ignorant pretenders have started up, and with great shew and noise frequently advertised their trifling performances; calling them cheap, curious, usefull and correct: as to ye first epithed, they are really dear, at any price; in ye second place, everyon body may see they are wild, confused and poorly engraven; as for their usefulness, they tend only to lead people into errors; and so far from being correct; that ye projection of their principal maps is notoriously false.
