(1) The annotation at the bottom left of the map was written in pencil but all other descriptions are in ink.
(2) This map represents the same territory of the three former New Torguud banners as the map in Heissig 1978 (no. 675). Both maps present the same arrangement of rivers and mountains, except that map M011 is drawn with south at the top and contains some additional detail for example, the fields on the southern shore of the Bulgan River. There were no definite borders between these three banners (see C028: 2-r, 2-v).
(3) The territory represented on the map extends beyond the present-day border between China and Mongolia, as far as the lower reaches of the Chingel River in Xinjiang, China. In 1906 the seven banners of Altai Urianhai, the three banners of New Torguud and the banner of New Hoshuud separated from the Hovd Frontier to establish the 11-banner Altai district. When the provisional boundary was defined along the Altai Mountains, creating a border that remained almost unchanged after the Tripartite Agreement of Khyakhta in 1915, these New Torguud banners were divided into two parts, one of which fell within China and the other within Mongolia.
(4) These two maps appear to have been copied from the “Map of the Entire Hovd Frontier” produced in 1890 (ОСБ 2001: 147).
