The maps date from the Qing dynasty (mostly the late Qing it seems) when the Manchus also ruled Mongolia as a part of China. Illustrated throughout with detailed reproductions of the maps with descriptive texts. Introductory essays and an index giving romanized translations of Mongolian place names. Main text in Chinese. Hard to find.
