The original Korean edition of this book was published by Hyohyung Publishing Co., Seoul, in 2007 as an ‘easy-access guidebook’ following publication of a more ambitious ‘art edition’ in 2000, which in turn derived from an extensive work on Korea’s record-keeping tradition of the Joseon Dynasty published in 1998.
