Comments: Beautiful chart of the central western coast of Sumatra.

The coast lines are further illustrated with with several topographical cross sections. Published in "The East-India Pilot, or Oriental Navigator, on One Hundred and Eighteen Plates: Containing a Complete Collection of Charts and Plans, &c..." (plate 90).
