ArticleAbstract: The Korean royal manuscript Gisa jinpyori jinchan uigwe (Record of the Presentation Ceremony and Banquet in the Gisa year), a single volume of 94 folios of illustrations and text, was acquired by the British Museum from a vendor in Paris in 1891, having apparently become separated from a group of manuscripts brought to France in 1866-7. It is now in the collection of the British Library. The manuscript was intended to record and illustrate in detail the ceremonies and edicts conducted in 1809 to celebrate the sixtieth anniversary of the consummation of the marriage of Prince Sado with Lady Hyegyeong (1735-1815). As such, it also is an important testimony to the reinstatement of Prince Sado (1735-1762) in the royal genealogy.
