A journal on maritime transport kept by Im Gyo-Jin (林喬鎭).

In May 1862 (Cheoljong year 13), Im was appointed as both Hamyeol county superintendent and Iksan’s granary tax transport official,

in charge of grain pain paid as taxes, stored at a state-run granary that held rice contributions collected from eight towns (eup) of the Honam region.

Im Gyo-Jin kept daily records on details of grain taxes and itineraries while managing their transport. It is Korea’s oldest existing maritime transport journal.
