Narrative vs Treatise vs Manual - Vincent's Calligraphy

The term "" is defined as :
《說文新附‧言部》:“譜,籍錄也。”分類編列以記人物、世系及家族的書籍。清鄭珍《說文新附考》:“譜,《世本》有《帝王譜》、《諸侯譜》、《大夫譜》各篇。 --- (中央研究院 搜詞尋字)
Hence, the term carries the meaning of "recording a certain subject or event in a systematic apporoach".  Since neither "Treatise" nor "Manual" suggests a meaning of recording, "Narrative" should be more appropriate in translating ""  into English in this context.
