This bibliographical compilation, based on Hellrigl, Wolfgang and Gabrisch, Karl: "Tibet. A Philatelic and Numismatic Bibvliography" presents a selection of existing publications on the history of Tibetan currency including bordering areas to the west and south of Tibet.

Compiling bibliographies is hardly anybody’s favourite occupation and if the work with bibliographies was more exciting and less time consuming we certainly would have many more specialized bibliographic compilations.which are a necessary tool for students and scholars whenever they want to embark on studies in a certain field which hitherto has not been their speciality.

A serious bibliographer will always strive for completeness, but the result which he presents will unfortunately be nothing more than a selective bibliography, as nobody can claim to have access to every publication worldwide in the field which forms the subject of his specialized bibliography. Hence I am quite aware that also the present sourcebook cannot present more than a selection of existing publication on the history of Tibetan currency (including bordering areas to the west and south of Tibet).

The nucleus of the present bibliographical compilation is the following publication: Hellrigl, Wolfgang and Gabrisch, Karl: Tibet. A Philatelic and Numismatic Bibliography. Santa Monica 1983.
