The 2,800 titles in the “e-ditions” program can be purchased individually as PDF eBooks or as hardcover reprint (“print-on-demand”) editions via the “Available from De Gruyter” link above. They are also available to institutions in ten separate subject-area packages that reflect the entire spectrum of the Press’s catalog. More about the E-ditions Program »
Third in the Scripta Mongolica series, this book reproduces a rare printed text of the Bolor Erike or Chaplet of Crystals, written in the eighteenth century but preserving a number of recitals, some unknown elsewhere, relating to Chinggis Qaghan and his line and to the history of the Mongols under the Chinese Ming dynasty. The dean of the world’s Mongolists provides a thorough textual and historical analysis.
