[The ISBN recorded in the back of the books seem to be the ISBN for the Guanzi Pu set. This is probably an error that the editors of the books did not catch]

ISBN 89-88847-30-6

Genran is a famous Japanese ancient go manual by Akaboshi Intetsu. With 69 problems, this is the Korean version of the 1846 edition of Genran. According to the GoGod CD, the 1846 edition incorporates the 1833 edition of “Genran” and the 1835 edition of “50 Diagrams of Hand Talk” by the same author.

Akaboshi Intetsu is best known as the guy who played Honinbo Jowa in the “Blood Vomiting Game” and lost. Akaboshi Intetsu passed away in 1835 within a few weeks after that game.
