Samut thai dami paper manuscript from south central Thailand. The paper has been blackened with charcoal of the sanoh khang khok tree. The more formal text (in yellow ink) includes a first-person account of a minor noble, his family, and his estate with reference to rituals performed at his home. Additional notes have been added in chalk by multiple hands, including a sermon on the path and accounts or calculations. Many pages have notes that are casually written and difficult to read. Written in 4 lines per segment. Written on black khoi paper, in yellow ink and white chalk; folded concertina- or accordion-style. In Thai (Thai). Attached upper cover with a border formed of additional layers of heavy paper; lower cover is missing. Written in south central Thailand (paper origin) between the 1820s and 1840s.
