Hello once again,

I found again two interesting links connected to Harry Newton Stevens collection of 176 Atlantic Neptune folders.

“A London dealer in books and atlases, Stevens amassed, over the course of fifty years, the most complete collection of Atlantic Neptune examples in the world, including first issue charts as well as those charts later revised by Des Barres”. cf.

cf. also as well this site with very important references

“J.F.W. Des Barres and The Atlantic Neptune”; pp. 18-22; National Maritime Museum (Greenwich), Henry Newton Stevens Collection: 47*a; Cf. Debard, “The Family Origins of Joseph Fredericks Wallet DesBarres: A Riddle Finally Solved”, Nova Scotia Historical Review, Vol 14, No. 2 (1994), p.15. – See more at:
