These manuscripts were evidently copied during the sixteenth century from separate originals, for they exhibit variations. See the introduction by Geoffrey L. Lewis to his translation of The Book of Dede Korkut ( London, 1974, 1982).

See H. B. Paksoy, Alpamysh zhene Bamsi Beyrek: Eki At, Bir Dastan" (Alpamysh and Bamsi Beyrek: Two Names, One Dastan], Kazak Edebiyati (Alma-Ata), no. 41, 10 October 1986 (rendered into Kazak by Fadli Aliev from Türk Dili, no. 403, 1985). The discussion pertaining to the dating of dastan Alpamysh boiled over during the "Trial of Alpamysh" of 1952-56, when all dastans of Central Asia were officially condemned by the Soviet state apparatus. According to Borovkov, Hadi Zarif, and Zhirmunskii, as well as earlier writings by Bartold, the dastan Alpamysh"existed probably in the foothills of the Altai as early as the sixth-eighth centuries at the time of the Türk Kaghanate." For details, see H. B. Paksoy, Alpamysh, p. 53.

Descendant of a German family settled in the Russian empire, the celebrated historian Bartold ( 1869- 1930) reportedly worked on this translation from the 1890s, completing the work in the late 1920s. Since Bartold had run afoul of the Bolshevik notions of history and was banished, publication had to await his "rehabilitation" by the Soviet authorities.
