A list book of paintings and calligraphic works stored in ilhanjae in 1726 (Year 2 of Yeongjo). Ilhanjae was where Yeongjo used to live before ascending the throne and it was situated between Gyeongbok palace and Ingyeong palace. After he left this place, it was used as an archive to collect art works. This book was published when Yeongjo was bequeathing his collection to the crown prince Hyojang. The book first lists down the Confucian classics followed by king’s writings and paintings, and works and numbers of Chinese and Joseon painters. This is found only in Jangseogak and is the oldest royal art work collection book present.
