Showcase Exhibit Korea Corner: Daedongyeojido: a map of Korea in 1861

When: July 2015
Where: Korea Corner, University Library

A copy of the well known scroll Daedongyeajido of 1861 is exhibited at Korea Corner (starting July 2015). The scroll was donated by the Pusan National University to CEASG at the opening of the Korea Corner in 2014 and is exhibited on the occasion of the start of the Pusan National University Summer School 2015 in Groningen and related visits from PNU and the Korea Foundation. The latter also supports the further development of the Korea Corner. The Summer School is coordinated by Korean studies coordinator Sunkung Choi.

Daedongyeojido (literally "The Great Map of the East Land") is a large scale map of Korea produced by Chosun Dynasty cartographer and geologist Kim Jeong-ho in 1861. A second edition was printed in 1864. One source describes it as the "oldest map in Korea". Daedongyeojido is considered very advanced for its time, and marks the zenith of pre-modern Korean cartography. Read more
