Daitoyochizu (Daedongyeojido) (The Great Map of the East Land)


Document title Daitoyochizu (Daedongyeojido) (The Great Map of the East Land)
Date created (Western calendar) after 1861
Date created (Japanese era) after the first year of Bunkyuu
Author(s) / Editor(s) Kim Jeong-ho
Name of publication
Content A map of the Korean peninsula made in the Kingdom of Chōsen (Joseon era).
Orihon (accordion book), color map drawn with a brush.
Unlike the woodblock printing book of 1861, Uzan Island (Usando) (which South Korea claims to be Takeshima) is depicted on the map of Utsuryo Island (Ulleungdo). However, judging from its location (the original "Seikyu-zu (Cheonggudo)" map by Kim Jeong-ho was a grid map) and shape, this Usando is not present-day Takeshima.
