[MONGOLIAN].
Qutuytu degedü yekede tonilyayci neretü sudur orusiba. (The Sutra of Perfect Enlightenment in Mongolian). Peking (?), Kangxi 47 (1708).
Lvs 34 + 38 + 32. Mongolian text. Woodblock printed, mostly on both sides, text within border. Seven pages printed in pink colour. Paper size: 17 x 52.2 cm. Water-stained throughout and a few leaves brown-spotted. First leaf defective with some loss of text. Several leaves frayed at outer margin, paper is very brittle, a few leaves restored and some with clean tears (no loss), a few ink annotations in Tibetan. Contemporary wood covers. Provenance: Staffan Rosťn, professor of Mongolian and Korean at Upsala, Sweden. Originally published in Mongolian in 1650, this is apparently the second edition. The Sutra of Perfect Enlightenment or Complete Enlightenment is a Mahayana Buddhist sutra. It is arranged in twelve chapters as a series of discussions on meditation practice. Traditionally it is attributed to Buddhatrata, an Indian or Kashmiri monk who translated the work from Sanskrit in 693. However some scholars believe it to be Chinese in origin and written in the late 7th or early 8th century A.D. Ref.: Walther Heissig, Die Pekinger Lamaistischen Blockdrucke in Mongolischer Sprache, Wiesbaden 1954, p. 23, no. 14.

ZWICK, HEINRICH AUGUST & SCHILL, JOHANN GOTTFRIED:
Calmuc Tartary; or a Journey from Sarepta to Several Calmuc Hordes or the Astracan Government: from May 26 to August 21, 1823. Undertaken, on Behalf of the Russian Bible Society. London, Holdsworth and Ball, 1831.
Pp. iv, 262. Modern paper covered boards. Ex. library copy ("withdrawn from Yale Univ. Library"). Rare English edition translated from the original German "Reise von Sarepta" published in Leipzig in 1827. Helmut August Zwick and Johann Gottfried Schill, Moravian missionaries and ethnologists, spent many years at the Herrnhut mission station of Sarepta (in lower Volga) among the Kalmuc tribes. "The Petersburgh Bible Society, at the time zealosly active, had sent to the Brethren at Sarepta, in the year 1822, a considerable number of copies of the Calmuc Gospel of Matthew, and other small Christian tracts, with a commission to get them distributed by Brethren sent out for the purpose. This was the origin of the journey, on behalf of the Petersburgh Bible Society, of which the account is now presented to the reader" (Introduction). Cat. Russica 692. Already in 1765 ( initiated by Catherine II) the Moravian missionaries built a new community at Sarepta in the middle of Kalmuc tribes. These people called Kalmucs or Oirat had moved from Eastern Turkestan (Xinjian, China) and settled down in the lower Volga region about 1628.
