PLAN DU PORT ROYAL dans l'Acadie Appellé Aujourd.' par les Anglois ANNAPOLIS ROYAL
Map of Port Royal in Acadia called Annapolis Royal by the English today
Jacques Nicolas Bellin
The use of Port Royal, especially on maps of French origin, continued well into the late 18th century even though it was officially changed to Annapolis Royal after the conquest of Acadia by the British in 1710. On this map, both names are present, which was also common for most of the 18th century.

Although this isn't referred to as the 2nd state by Kershaw or others, the map itself is identical to the 1744 version with the following differences: the 1744 printing has "Par N. B. Ing. De la M. 1744", the ornamental cartouche is not present, notes Dheulland in the lower left corner outside the neat lines as the engraver and has "4" bottom left; the 1764 printing does not have the Bellin notation, does not credit Dheulland and has "Tome I, No. 27" outside the neat lines in the upper right. The presence of that notation is proof this map is from "Le Petit Atlas Maritime" (Kershaw 791). It is also identical to the 1756 German 'reprint' of the 1744 version.
