Ch'oe Wan-su, Chief Curator of the Kansong Museum in Seoul, presents travelogues and poems by Chong Son's contemporaries, scholars and officials who were inspired to compose those remarkable texts when they too visited the same landmarks. Korean scholars habitually wrote in Chinese, and frequently referred to Chinese paragons of landscape beauty, even while extolling the superior virtues of their native land. Some of them travelled as diplomats to the Chinese capital and even sold Chong Son's paintings there at a handsome profit, though the artist himself had no opportunity to visit China or see Chinese paintings at first hand. Accordingly, this book illuminates contemporary relations between the two countries, as well as introducing each site in detail and explaining typical features of Korean architecture and customs. This edited translation, by Youngsook Pak and Roderick Whitfield, both internationally known in their respective fields of Korean and Chinese art, has been thoroughly prepared for western readers, both students and the general public, and provides additional explanatory notes and maps, not included in the original Korean edition. It includes words and glossaries in Korean and Chinese and Sino-Korean characters.
