This atlas opens with the ch'onhado (map of all under heaven), a traditional representation of the world. China is in the centre, surrounded by Korea, Japan, the Western Regions, and various mythical countries from the Shanhai jing (the Classic of Mountains and Seas, a Chinese book of geography and mythology, written between 475-221 BC). These countries include the Land of Immortals, the Land of Winged People and the Land of Amazons, among others. The second map is of China, showing mountains, the Great Wall and the old Ming-dynasty provinces. The third and fourth maps are of Japan and the Ryukyu Islands. Subsequent maps depict the various provinces of Korea: Kyonggi, Ch'ungch'ong, Cholla, Kyongsang, Hwanghae, Pyongan, Kangwon, and Hangyong. The final map is an overall map of Korea, showing its kingdoms and capitals.
