Description: (SUMATRA - MANUSCRIPT MAP.) Boelen, J. Figurative Kaart betreffende de Westkust Sumatra van de hoek van Langkap tot benoorden reede van Croumon Samen gesteld uit waarnemingen gedaan aan boord H.M. Korvet Boreas. Fine early copy of an unrecorded manuscript chart by J. Boelen. Graphite and ink on onion skin paper, modern canvas backing with silk selvage. 26 1/2x31 inches. [Np, after 1841]

Notes: An excellent survey of a portion of the western coast of Sumatra, the nucleus of the nineteenth century pepper trade. The original survey was likely drawn by the Dutch mariner Jacobus Boelen during his voyage to the East Indies as commander of the Corvette Boreas from 1840-42.
