Mongolia and the Mongols Results of a Journey made to Mongolia in the Years 1892–1893

Article metrics


THE author of this work is a well-known specialist in Mongolian and Manchurian dialects. He visited Mongolia, for the first time, in 1876, and brought home a remarkable collection of 972 volumes of both printed and MS. works on the history of Mongolia, which prove that our former conceptions of Mongolian historical literature, as being entirely permeated with an ultra-Buddhist spirit, were utterly incorrect. For the last fifteen years, M. Pozdnéeff was professor of Mongolian dialects and literature at the St. Petersburg University, and he has published a great number of smaller monographs on different subjects connected with Mongolian literature and administrative organisation, as well as a big work on Mongolian monasteries. His name is not unknown either in this country, as he edited for the Bible Society various publications in Mongolian, Kalmyk, and Manchurian.
