On November 20, the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee put on display a copy of Kim Jeong-ho's (金正浩) famous 1861 "Dae Dongyeo Jido" (大東輿地圖) map, one of only 28 complete sets known still to exist. However, the copy at the University of Wisconsin has something that none of the other copies have: an index map (總目全幅).
Liancourt Rocks (Dokdo / Takeshima) does not appear on the Dae Dongyeo Jido (大東輿地圖), or on any Korean map from the Joseon Dynasty, but the index map shown below makes it even clearer that Liancourt Rocks (Dokdo / Takeshima) were not considered a part of Korean territory.
It seems strange that the University of Wisconsin map is the only remaining copy of the "Dae Dongyeo Jido" (大東輿地圖) that has an index map. I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that it was brought out of Korea in the late 1800s?
