ABSTRACT

This paper examines the emergence and changes of daily-life encyclopedias in the late Joseon Dynasty, based on the comparative studies of Sallim-gyeongje (Farm Management; 山林經濟) by Hong Man-seon, Jeungbo-sallim-gyeongje (Revised and Augmented Farm Management; 增補山林經濟) by Yu Jung-rim, and Imwon-gyeongjeji (Essays on Rural Life and Economy; 林園經濟志) by Seo Yu-gu. To this end, in Chapter 2, I reviewed the number of citations of Sallim-gyeongje in the list of references of Imwon-gyeongjeji. In Chapter 3, I made a comparative analysis of the table of contents and the contents of the three kinds of encyclopedias. Lastly, in chapter 4, I summarized the aspects of changes with regard to the contents of the three different encyclopedias. The newly added contents are the following three: various tools and household items; knowledge related to hobbies and leisure; and knowledge of how to create and accumulate wealth. These changes represent the gentry’s desire for a higher quality of a descent living and the active pursuits of wealth, departing from the traditional style of living a content life amid poverty and taking pleasure in cultivating morally.
