PREFACE TO THE 2006 EDITION
_______________________________________________________________________________
arrived in Qinghai in 1987 and, after meeting some Monguor, having a few Monguorstudents and learning more about the Monguor, I also discovered Schram. Father Schram wasa Catholic missionary and his work is, at times, colored by that perspective, as well as thelate-nineteenth-century--early-twentieth-century academic world he was a product of.Nevertheless, Schram records important information about the Monguor that is unavailableelsewhere and, in 2006, that many Monguor/Mangghuer/Mongghul are unaware of.In 2004, a search for Schram’s three-volume work on abebooks.com “the world’s largest onlinemarketplace for books,” produced four results. Three were for Volume I. The fourth was for thecomplete set and was priced at 676.40 US dollars,

THE AMERICANPHILOSOPHICAL SOCIETY
kindly gave permission to republish Schram’s three-volume study,which we have now made available at a price that more people can afford. We hope that Schram’smaterials republished will attract a new generation of readers.Although well-edited for its time, current word processing spell-checking features andautomated ways of creating footnotes provide tools that raised the question of correctinginconsistiences in spellings and footnote numberings. In the end, I kept original spellings andpunctuations. Footnotes have, however, been numbered uniformly. A bibliography on theMonguor has also been added. In addition, the figures that appeared in the original versions havebeen collected and presented together at the beginning of the text, the three parts have beennumbered consecutively and there is no index, given the availability of a searchable .pdf version.I thank Juha Janhunen, Paul Nietupski, Gray Tuttle, Keith Slater, Jeroom Heyndrickx andLimusishiden for writing new introductions and the Verbiest Institute for providing photographsof Louis Schram. I also sincerely thank Mr. Tshe dbang rdo rje (Caixiangduojie) for his invaluablehelp in producing this edition.Charles Kevin Stuart
