Commentary: Snow 2007rn"The text of CSM 209 is given in the original (Mettmann's ed.) and in English prose translation. The text of the article concentrates on the narrative aspect of both text and miniatures (not always identical) and describes each of the six panels (a color plate is included). The significance of this study is its highlighting the biography — and possible autobiography — involved in the making of this account."
