Third in the Scripta Mongolica series, this book reproduces a rare printed text of the Bolor Erike or Chaplet of Crystals, written in the 18th 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.
