This article re-examines previous theories concerning the problems regarding the Mongol chronicles compiled in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and then suggests how they should be employed in the study of Mongol history from the Ming to early Qing dynasties. The authors and dates of compilation of many of the chronicles from this period have not been recorded, and although bibliographic studies of the works have continued, many problems remain unanswered. One of these problems concerns the chronicle Sira tuɣuji and its relation to the Erdeni-yin tobci. It has been known that the title Erten-u mongɣol-un qad-un undusun-u yeke sira tuɣuji has been affixed to one manuscript of the Sira tuɣuji, and that this corresponds to one of the seven works employed in the compilation of the Erdeni-yin tobci. Given this fact, prevailing opinion has been that the Erdeni-yin tobci was compiled after the Sira tuɣuji, and is that the Sira tuɣuji was used in the compilation of the Erdeni-yin tobci, however, by comparing the contents of the Erdeni-yin tobci, and the Sira tuɣuji, l have confirmed that the two works share many passages, and although the Sira tuɣuji appears to abbreviate many portions of the Erdeni-yin tobci, the Erdeni-yin was compiled earlier and l have indicated in this article that the prevailing view is mistaken. l have also made clear the fact that the Sira tuɣuji employs the Asaraɣci neretu-yin teuke, which had been compiled in 1677. Additionally, given the fact that the lineage of princes recorded in the Sira tuɣuji records the names of those ennobled early in the eighteenth century, this also provides confirmation of the fact that the work was compiled in the early part of the eighteenth century. On the other hand, concerning the fact that one manuscnpt of the Sira tuɣuji has the same titleas one of the works consulted in the compilation of the Erdeni-yin tobci, it may be supposed that a later copyist familiar with the content of the Erdeni-yin tobci reused it. Additionally, although the chronicles compiled in Inner Mongolia in the seventeenth century influenced the chronicles produced later in Outer Mongolia, it is also clear that, in the eighteenth century, chronicles compiled in Outer Mongolia influenced those from Inner Mongolia.
