Caption: Korean world map, 19th century. Printed and hand-coloured world map from an atlas of Korea (Chonhado/World Atlas). The form and circular shape of such Korean maps were largely unchanged from the earliest known examples in the 16th century. The main features were an internal continent surrounded by a sea, with an external continent and sea around the edge. The names and descriptions of places (such as mountains and rivers) would include references to the religious philosophy of Taoism.
