About the Book:
The La-dvags-rgyal-rabs<-i> (Royal Genealogy of Ladakh) which constitutes the subject of this work, is one of the most well-known chronicles of Tibet. But inspite of its reputation, it has not yet been the object of a serious and thorough study which might determine its origin and nature and profitably bring out the historical materials contained in it. The author`s endeavour has been principally directed, within the limits of his possibility, to achieve this object, and to make at the same time some new contribution to the history of Tibet, which our knowledge is still so scanty.<-p>
