Description: (SUMATRA - MANUSCRIPT MAP.) Ashmore, Samuel. Carte des Principales Rades & Marches a Poivre dans la Partie Nord de la Cote Ouest de Sumatrapar Samuel Ashmore, 1821. Fine early copy in French of an unrecorded manuscript chart by Samuel Ashmore. Ink on onion skin paper, modern canvas backing with silk selvage. 27 1/2x20 inches; small loss lower right corner. [Np, after 1821]

Notes: Originally surveyed by accomplished Australian sea captain Samuel Ashmore, the chart accurately depicts important ports along northwestern Sumatra''s "Pepper Coast" from the port of Analabou (Arongan Lambalek) to Singkil. The chart features three inset maps and four inset coastal views, the largest focusing on the area around the island harbor of Touroumang (Troumon), the largest exporter of pepper in the region and Pulo Doua (Dooa Harbour), which Horsburgh considered "the best among the Northern pepper Ports."
