Abstract
The first Korean mathematical science journal was published by Yu, Il- Sun in 1905 and the name of this journal is "Mathematical Science magazine". This monthly journal was published for 2 years. But in the existing literature, there is no information about it. We discovered its existence and studied its contents. From the historical materials, pioneering contributions of Yu, Il-Sun to mathematics were provided. In this article, the first issue of this journal was fully analyzed. We could see his affection and enthusiasm for the journal that he started. More mathematical search efforts on finding historical math materials should be continued. More efforts should be made on finding historical math literatures. Related researches will be done. Those works will be worth to be shared in ICME-12 and ICM 2014.
