This history of the Mongols, called "Erdeni-yin tobchi" ("The Jewelled Button") was originally compiled by Ssanang Ssetsen in 1662. He was a Mongolian prince from the Ordos region in China. In 1817 Schmidt was presented by a copy acquired in Peking of the Mongolian edition and in 1829 Schmidt published the original text together with a German translation, followed by an appendix of explanatory notes and an index. It's regarded as the first monument of Mongolian historiographical literature to be presented in full to European readers, and also as an encyclopaedic store of information about the history and culture of the Mongols..
