Why this is a
Masterpiece

The entire map of Korea distinguishes the eight provinces with eight corresponding colors following the way the Unified Map of Territories and Capitals of the States (Honil-gangni-yeokdae-gukdo-jido) adopts. Major cities, rivers, and mountains are also indicated with traditional coloring methods. General status of residences, fields and paddies, military organizations, troops, warehouses, and logistics bases of the entire country is shown in detail at the bottom of the map, while administrative organizations, headquarters of provincial governors, residences, fields and paddies, military organizations, and troops of the province are shown at the bottom of each province map.

History of the Object
This folding screen is comprised of one page of an entire map of Korea, eight pages of Korean province maps, and one page of a Man-ju (Sheng-king and Ring-gu-ta) area map. It is assumed to be published after 1712, judging from the fact that it indicates the Border Stele right below the peak of Baekdu-san mountain.
