Depiction of 대동여지도

“Daedongyeojido” is the oldest map of Korea created by Kim Jeong-ho (pen name: Gosanja) in the 12th year of King Cheoljong’s reign (1861). The map is drawn on an enormous piece of paper that can be folded into 21 pages. Fully unfolded, it becomes a huge map of the country. Page 1 contains the preface explaining the motives and principles of the map production, statistics on Seoul and the eight provinces, the legend, and a separate map of the five districts in Seoul. The map of the whole country ranges from Pages 2 to 21. The map includes the provinces, counties and villages as well as the mountains and rivers. The roads connecting the provinces are marked every 3.9km (10 li) to indicate the distance. The map also includes local government offices, county offices, castles, military encampment sites, public warehouses, government horse ranches, beacon fire mounds, royal tombs, village offices, sites of old counties, disused military encampment sites, abandoned fortresses, and a web of roads. There are other versions of the map in the Kyujanggak Institute for Korean Studies, the National Library of Korea, and Sungshin Women’s University Museum. This version, however, is of higher bibliographical value with additional information on the statistics concerning Seoul and the eight provinces. Also, it is in great condition showing the clear printing and skilled coloring.

  • 대동여지도(大東輿地圖)는 조선 철종 12년(1861)에 고산자(古山子) 김정호(金正浩)가 만든 전국 지도로 최고의 선본이다. 총 21첩으로 되어 있으며 병풍처럼 접고 펼 수 있는 분첩절첩식(分疊折帖式) 형태로 되어 있어 모두를 아래 위로 맞추면 전국지도가 된다. 제1첩에는 지도유설, 경도 및 각 도별 인·물수, 지도표, 경도오부지도 등이 수록되어 있고 제2첩부터 제21첩까지가 전국지도이다. 지도는 지방의 군현, 산, 강 등이 주요 부분을 이루는데, 여기에 각 군현간에 통하는 도로가 표시되어 있고, 도로에는 10리마다 구획이 지어져 있다. 세부적으로는 영아(營衙), 읍치(邑治), 성지(城池), 진보(鎭堡), 창고(倉庫), 목소(牧所), 봉수(烽燧), 능침(陵寢), 방리(坊里), 고현(古縣), 고진보(古鎭堡), 고산성(古山城), 도로(道路) 등이 표시되어 있다. 서울대학교 규장각, 국립중앙도서관, 성신여대박물관 등에 동일본이 소장되어 있으나, 경도(京都) 및 각(各) 도별(道別) 인(人)·물수(物數)는 다른 기관 소장본에는 없는 내용으로 서지학적인 가치가 있다. 또한 목판 인쇄상태와 채색 솜씨, 그리고 보존상태 등이 훌륭하다
