Fascinating little-known tales of Korea's Yi Dynasty

A Korean Decameron by Ty Pak was originally published in a small, limited edition in 1961 in Seoul. At the time it sold mostly to American GIs in tourist shops and PXs. Most copies of this rare book disappeared, but a few survived, including the copy used as the basis for the Bo-Leaf reprint. A Korean Decameron is a fascinating and important text both for the story of its original production and for the Yi Dynasty tales it includes. It will be a valuable addition to the study of Korean narrative folklore, providing tales generally unavailable outside special library collections. This collection includes the original illustrations, as well as a new introduction and notes.
