ABSTRACT

American Harvard-Yenching Library has uploaded its Dongba manuscripts of Naxi on the official website. Most of the Dongba manuscripts collection is featured with older version, good appearance, fluent and elegant writing, and the portraits are true to life. Therefore, Harvard Dongba manuscripts collections are definitely rare collections. Some of these manuscripts were written by He Hong, who was one of well-known Dongba, native Naxi priests, in Baisha, Lijiang. This paper focuses on several aspects of the title pages, writing style, postscript of He Hong’s manuscripts in order that we can understand the characteristic of the Dongba manuscripts of Baisha.
