Please excuse the duplication. This question is for libraries with Tibetan collections, preferably medical collections. I have some translations and am trying to find someone with a copy of an important Mongolian medical text which was written in Tibetan. I have a Tibetan short title but would like to see a copy of the original text in order to create authority records. There already appear to be multiple NARs for the author and an original text would also help in sorting this out.

The Tibetan short title for this text is Gces btus snin nor [tilde over 1st "n" & dot above 2nd "n" in "snin"] by the 19th century medical lama Blo-bzan-chos-'phel [dot above "n" in bzan}. NARs no2008054364 and no 99030756 are both for this person (sman-pa just means medical practitioner). Neither no 80039549 nor n 87945348 seem to represent this person. I'm tempted to just fix everything with what I have (several different forms of name from different sources) but would prefer to do it right with a good source.

Thank you for any help.
