The Dixon-Meares Controversy- Containing, Remarks on the Voyages of John Meares, by George Dixon, An Answer to Mr. George Dixon, by John Meares, and Further Remarks on the Voyages of John Meares, by George Dixon
Abstract"The controversy sheds light on the early days of the Maritime fur trade. Meares was an important figure in the trade and his Voyages were widely read and are still to be found in libraries. Dixon has shown that Meares was incapable of telling a consistent story. The three pamphlets are, therefore, a necessary commentary on the Voyages."
