Seoul, Korea: Pagijong Press, 2014.
Paperback. 8 3/4" X 6". 227pp. Very mild edgewear to paperback binding. Binding is tight and sound. Contents are clean, bright, and unmarked. From rear cover: "The Gyu-Bang is a woman's private dormitory established due to the extreme inequality and segregation between the roles of males and females in Korea. Therefore, the culture of the Gyu-Bang reflects the lifestyle of women in the Cho-Sun period. This literature explores in detail how women in the Cho-Sun period flourised in culture and tradition in regards to the Gyu-Bang. Whilst research associated with the Gyu-Bang was focused on such activites as sewing, cooking and cross-stitching until now, this literature is rather focused on the growth and development of women, the book they read, the songs they sund, the poems they recited and other leisure activities."
