Joseon Paldo Jido (朝鮮八道地圖) - Ulleungdo (鬱陵島)

The following is a map of Ulleungdo, from a book entitled "Joseon Paldo Jido (朝鮮八道地). It is a cutout from a map of Pyongando (平安道), Hwanghaedo (黃海道), and Gangwondo (江原道). As far as I know, the date of the map is unknown. The map is stored in the Kyujanggak Institute for Korean Studies at Seoul National University.

Notice that it shows a small island just off the east shore of Ulleungdo labelled 于山 (Usan). Today, Koreans call the island Jukdo (竹島 - 죽도), which is about two kilometers off Ulleungdo's northeast shore. Some Koreans claim that Usan was the old Korean name for Liancourt Rocks (Dokdo / Takeshima), but there is no Korean map or documentary evidence to support the claim.



Let me know if this map has already been posted here.

  3. Mr. Bevers,
    오랫만에 님의 포스트를 보면서 기뻐요.

    재미있는 지도를 소개해 주셔서 고마워요. 규장각은 우산도는 독도가 아니다 라는 올바른 지식을 확산하려고 노력하고 있는 것이 아닌가요?(웃음)

    Thanks, Chaaimiey. I have moved back to the US and have been busy helping my son adjust to life and school here. Things have now settled down, and I plan to start studying the dispute again. I am a little rusty.

    Take care.

  7. Do not bother answering the question about 51 countries. I found the date I was looking for: 1886
