Second 'edition', prepared in 1733, and published in 1734. The title has been altered in manuscript, as above. As these manuscript corrections are found on both the known examples, it would seem the corrections represent a second 'edition', coinciding with state 2 of themap, in which sheet 8 has been re-engraved, to insert the inset of Louisburg, following Southack's visit there in 1733. The engraved text in the inset, relating to Louisburg, is apparently engraved by one hand, but the lettering in the second half is much darker. Inset: [Untitled Chart of Louisburg Harbour] [note] The Occasion of my drawing this Map is to shew how strong the French have Fortified / this Harbour of Louisbourg on the island Breton being all stonework.

State 3: the title has been engraved in place of the original dedication; the longitude in the border has been re-engraved, and now measures west and east of the meridian of Boston: 'Longitude East from Boston' & 'Longitude West from Boston.' New compass roses have been engraved in the sea south of Long Island [sheet 2: 4d], south of Penobscot Bay [sheet 3: 4d] west of Nova Scotia [sheet 5: 2d] and all the rhumb lines in the sea erased and re-engraved - a tremendous undertaking, done with great care. Four insets: of Casco Bay, New York Harbour, Boston Harbour and Annapolis Royal have been added.

State 4: the imprint of Mount and Page has been inserted in the title. A new inset, of Halifax, has been inserted. The example described is on 7 sheets only, lacking sheet 8, with the inset map of the North Atlantic. Two examples in the Library of Congress also lack sheet 8, while another has the key map to Henry Popple's map of the British Empire inserted. A fourth example, in a Boston private collection, comprises only the four western sheets, but is as issued, laid on the original canvas, with the original wooden rollers. Evidently, the original purchaser was interested in acquiring only that section of the map showing the coastline between New York and Boston.

State 2: A third sheet has been added, extending the coverage of the map eastwards, so the map now extends from New York Harbour to western Newfoundland. Furthermore, the original sheets have additions, including a new inset, and a scale bar. The inset of Boston remains, with the outer border widened. Some re-engraving has occurred in Nova Scotia (described below), while the original graduated border of the second sheet has been replaced by a single line border, without graduations, visible in subsequent states. The additional sheet shows Cape Breton I. (with an inset of Louisburg) and part of Newfoundland. 'Island Breton' has ben erased ans 'THE / ISLAND OF / BRETON' and 'PART OF NEW / FOUND LAND' added. Consistent with this, Senex made a number of minor changes in Nova Scotia, (now named 'ACCADIA OR NOVA SCOTIA'), including the insertion of trees, and added soundings in the sea, below the title.

Soundings and anchors have been added in Long Island Sound, west of Fishers Island, as the 'X 1/4' and 'X.

State 3: The plate has been extensively re-worked. The banner behind the title has been re-worked, with the shading of the lower fringe more structured. In the scale bar, the unit 0 to 10 have been divided into six smaller units, but the other units are not changed. The bank of 'Banc des Orphelins' is engraved behind the name, rather than to the left, and stippled for the first time [4b]. The bank of 'Bank Bradelle' is also engraved behind the name, instead of to the lower left, and is much enlarged, as well as being stippled for the first time. The shoal off the southern end of Anticosti has not been recut, and has disappeared [4b], as have the smaller shoals around Nantucket Island (leaving only 'Nantuker Shoals') [2d], Long Island, New Jersey, Delaware Bay, and the Delmava peninsula. Subsequent issues show continued deterioration of the image, with many of the shoals along the southern New England coastline gradually fading out.
