82 folding leaves. Small folio (334 x 220 mm.), orig. wrappers (rubbed & a little soiled), later stitching. [Korea: 1859].

A rare calligraphic copybook, using rubbings of inscriptions carved in stone. The rubbings are from various pieces of famous calligraphy, including those of Injo (1595-1649, r. 1623-49), king of Chosŏn. Various styles of calligraphy are demonstrated.

One leaf each is bound-in at the front and back of the book. These leaves contain printed Buddhist texts and appear to be printer’s waste, used to protect the main body of the book.

Fine copy, preserved in a chitsu. See WorldCat accession numbers 40485550 and 703734781.
