J. N. Bellin's Petit atlas maritime. Recueil de cartes et plans des quatre parties du monde, etc. (five volumes, Paris, 1764) has two plates of St. Helena; Plan de l'Isle Ste Helene (Vol. III, plate No. 123) is a map of the island and Plan de la forteresse et bourg, de lisle de Ste Helene (Vol. III, plate No. 124) is a plan view of Jamestown and the fortifications.
Bellin's plan view of Jamestown Plan de la forteresse et bourg, de lisle de Ste Helene (size 175 by 220 mm; reproduced above) shows the locations of the landing, the watering point, various gun batteries and magazines, the Governor's House in the Castle, a guardhouse/checkpoint in upper Jamestown, and the roads leading out of Jamestown. What presumably are extensive gardens in Jamestown are also indicated.
