The world map is a version of a typical western form, whilst the maps of the provinces identify the principal towns, rivers and administrative boundaries. The traditional form of construction of the atlas means that the fold in each map is at the outer margin rather than the inner, as is usual with western atlases These Korean atlases were produced to train the Korean elite on geography, part of an educational tradition established in the 1850’s.
