Abstract:
Chronicle of the filial devotion and clean living of the Ŏm Family. This Hangŭl manuscript is a copy of a novel of unknown authorship. Its theme is filial piety and it is set in Song dynasty China. At the end of the ninth chapter there is a brief note, "This book was copied in the year of Musul." However, it is not clear if "Musul" refers to the fourth year of Hŏnjong (1838) or the second year of Kwangmu (1898), or possibly an earlier date. Considering the condition of the paper, it seems to have been copied during the Hŏnjong era (1834-1849) or Kwangmu era (1897-1907). This manuscript is a good source for research on the Korean novel and the history of Hangŭl (the Korean writing system).
