1600s - Map of Silla, Goguryo, & Baekje Regions

The map below is from a 1600s atlas entitled "Old Maps of China & Joseon" (支那朝鮮古地圖 - 지나조선고지도), which is stored in the National Library of Korea (國立中央圖書館 - 국립중앙도서관). The map is entitled "Map of the Original Regions of Silla, Goguryo, and Baekje" (新羅高勾麗百濟肇造區域之圖 - 신라고구려백제조조구역지도).

Double click on the map to enlarge.


Below is a cutout from the map that shows a single island off the east coast of Korea labeled as "Usan-guk - now Ulleungdo" (羽山國 今 鬱陵島 - 우산국, 지금 울릉도). This map is more evidence that Usan-guk was recognized as only one island, not two, during the time of the Silla Kingdom.

  2. GTOMR,

    You are welcome.

    Besides the map showing Usan-guk, I also thought it was interesting that it also seems to show the mud flats off the west coast of Korea.

  3. 치우친 생각은 거짓 주장을 만들게 되어 있습니다.

    한국에는 무수히 많은 섬이 있습니다. 설마 한국에 섬이 5개 뿐이라고 생각하는 것은 아니겠죠?

    그럼 나머지 섬들은 왜 그리지 않은 것인가요?

  4. When I look at the island in the far east, I would suggest that there are/is at least one other island as the two words/names suggest.

  5. sorry i haven`t read the translation.
    But wasn`t Usanguk referring to Juk-Do and not to Ulleung-Do as a whole? Isn`t it possible that the map has some flaws?

  6. Oh I forgot to add. The term -Guk means land, like Dae-Han-Min-Guk means Korea or Mi-Guk means America. The term -Do means island, like Ulleung-Do or Dok-Do.

    It is possible that the name Usan-Guk is referring to many islands, as the name Usan-Land would suggest.

  8. I don't understand if this proves anything related to dokdo..

    what do you want to say? Gerry..

    Do you know anything about U-san guk?

    it refers to country at east sea forming couple of islands..

    How can you post such a thing like this when you know just a little about the subject.

    there are a lot of people researching at this subject.

    and it's kind of complicated. I wonder how you are not feeling foolish putting up these nonesense when you know very little.

    You think you're some kind of genius? Be shamed...
