'Hundred Chapters from the Five Classics is a literary work containing, as the title suggests, a collection of ninety-nine chapters selected by King Jeongjo (r. 1776-1800) from the Five Classics: Book of Odes, Book of Documents, Book of Changes, Book of Rites, and the Spring and Autumn Annals plus two essays written by Zhu Xi (朱熹, 1130-1200), a great Neo-Confucian thinker of Song Dynasty China. Prior to the woodblock printing, different editions of the texts were carefully analyzed and selected. The project for the compilation and publication of the book started in 1794 and was completed four years later. The
royal seal of “Gyujang jibo” (奎章之寶) stamped on the first volume suggests that this particular copy of five volumes was a special gift from the king.'
'『오경백편』은 조선 후기에 정조가 『주역周易』·『서경書經』·『시경詩經』·『춘추春秋』·『예기禮記』에서 중요한 99편을 추리고, 주희朱熹[1130-1200]의 저술 2편을 더해 엮은 목판본이다. 정조가 직접 선정한 부분들을 해당 경전의 여러 판본을 모아 엄밀하게 교정하여 목판본으로 간행하였다. 1794년 간행 사업이 시작되어 1798년에 완료되었다. 본서는 총 5권으로 제1권의 목록에 수장인 ‘규장지보奎章之寶’가 찍혀 있는 점으로 보아 내사본內賜本으로 판단된다.'
