Description: The Harley Harris Bartlett Batak Collection is a collection of over 600 bamboo sticks, inscribed in a Batak language (likely Toba Batak) using the Surat Batak script, at Bartlett's request, during Bartlett's time in Asahan, Sumatra. They have not been individually catalogued or assessed in detail, and include at least "traditional writing- and reading-manuals, short poems, letters, and formulae and incantations".
