Dear All,

I'm looking for some hojOk (census documents) for late nineteenth-century
Seoul.  Presumably what few that are extant are somewhere in Japan (I
think Yoshida mentions the ones from 1896, 1903, and 1906).  Could anyone
tell me WHERE they're housed, so that I could have my university library
try to acquire copies?  I'm especially interested in the pre-1897 specimen
that cover western Seoul.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
