19th Century Chemistry Book of Korean Mathematician Sang-Seol LEE

Yongkeun Son, Chae Sik Kim, Sang-gu Lee, Jae Hwa Lee


Sang-Seol LEE wrote a manuscript HwaHakGyeMongCho(化學啓蒙抄)
in the late 19th century. HwaHakGyeMongCho was transcribed from Science Primers: Chemistry (written by H. E. Roscoe), which is translated into Chinese by Joseph Edkins in 1886. LEE did not copy original writing exactly, but he understood the contents of each chapter and sections, then summarized and edited them in his caligraphic writing. In this paper, we introduce the contents for the first time and discuss the significance of this book.
