A chart of the western coast of the island of Sumatra and its surrounding ocean. Includes rhumb lines and fine detail along the coastline, labeling ports, islands, and soundings in the ocean.

Jean Baptiste d’Apres de Mannevillette was a prominent French hydrographer and cartographer, and a superior officer in the French East India Company. He was known for charting the coasts of India and China during the 18th century. Mannevillette’s work was internationally renowned, and his charts and atlases were important resources for ships navigating the region. This map is from the 1775 expanded edition of his atlas “Le Neptune Oriental”, which was an authoritative and widely used source in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, and drew on Mannevillette’s own experience as a navigator and naval officer in the seas of Asia.
