His famous map "Amerique Septentrionale Divisee en ses Principales Parties" was derived mainly from Sansonís and Jaillotís maps of 1656 and 1676. At this time, California was no longer shown as an island, but as a peninsular, and the Great Lakes to the north are enclosed, which was another feature often shown incorrectly on earlier maps of America. This map has been published in 1792 in an Atlas which included 37 other maps of different countries.
