Sejong Sillok, Jiriji (Geography Section of the Annals of King Sejong’s Reign)
(1454, Korea)

〔Translation〕

The two islands, Usan (Dokdo) and Mureung (Ulleungdo), are in the middle of the sea, due east of the county (Uljin).
The two islands are not far apart; hence each can be seen from the other side on a clear day.
