ABSTRACT

This is the second paper in a series of research courses that examine HongDamHeon Cheokdok(≪洪湛軒尺牘≫), kept in the Rare Books Collection Division of Peking University library, comparing 13 letters--from the tenth to the 22nd letter--with the domestic literary collection and translating it back into Korean. Most of these letters were written in February 1766 when the Chosun’s envoy, Hong Dae-yong(洪大容), stayed in Beijing, and only the 22nd letter was written by Hong Dae-yong in late July of the same year to ask his regards to a scholar of the Qing Dynasty, Yan Cheng(嚴誠), after he returned to Chosun. Through a comparative study of these letters and Hong Dae-yong’s DamHeonSeo (≪湛軒書≫), a collection of documents published in the Chosun Dynasty, I investigate and reveal the differences between the two books, as well as an unknown story not written in DamHeonSeo (≪湛軒書≫), such as the postscript at the end of the 10th and 13th letters. In addition, the 11th letter includes NonSeongSeo (≪論性書≫) written by Chosun’s Kim Won-haeng(金元行) and annotations written by a scholar of Qing Dynasty. On the basis of these contents, I examine the traces of high-level academic exchanges and discussions made between scholars of both Dynasties.
