- Gyujanggak Seomok(奎章閣書目) is a full list of the books from Gyujanggak(奎章閣, Royal Library) written during the reign of Gojong and Sunjo. It is a compilation of the list of books from three places; Yeolgogwan(閱古觀) where books of China were collected, Seogo(西庫) where books of Joseon were collected, and Yimunwon(?文院) which was an associated office of the Royal Library. Existing three kinds of Gyujanggak Seomok which were written with some time differences provide clues to restore the collections of the Royal Library. This article examines the situation and changes of the collections from the Royal Library during the reign of Gojong and Sunjo through the Gyujanggak Seomok.
This article mainly focuses on two issues. First, it explores the current condition, written period, and characteristics of each book lists as a basic investigation of three kinds of the Gyujanggak Seomok. Second, it examines the transfer and changes that occurred to the collection through the Gyujanggak Seomok. From this, we can better understand the management of the books by the state with the Royal Library at the center, and the feature of the pre-modern culture of the book collections.
