- This study aims to understand the formation of bibliotheca in Kyujanggak(奎章閣) tracking down editions of 『Mengzi』 in the list of books in Kyujanggak during the period from King Jeongjo(正祖) to King Kojong(高宗) era
The book lists of Wongyujanggak, several libraries around Kyujanggak, Jipokjae(集玉齋) and Sago(史庫) in King Kojong era were examined to track down variation and succession of 『Mengzi』 editions in the list of books in Kyujanggak.
As a result, the『Mengzi』edition, which is often listed in normal book lists as a Confucian classic, is found to be a major method to understand formation and development of Kyujanggak bibliotheca. While different information of the editions was reflected according to each era and location, the editions themselves were succeeded continuously without much loss. Therefore, the attempt to examine the formation of Kyujanggak books through book lists deserves to continue sampling more various editions.
Since Kyujanggak has less inflow of books and proper storage measures with authority of kings library, the editions of 『Mengzi』 are not much separated. Without outside pressure to disperse the books, they could maintain their appearance. Examining other editions of Confucian classics would support this point positively.
Few editions of Confucian classics have been added to book lists ever since Japanese colonial era. It is estimated that organizing and utilizing were more focused at this time. This point will be discussed in the next study.
