This collection of fourteen letters was written by Kim Jeong-hui (pen-name: Bodamje, 1786-1856), who is widely regarded as one of the greatest calligraphers and epigraphers of Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910). He wrote these letters to his fellow scholar Bak Jeong-jin between 1849, when he was 64, and 1856, the year in which he died at the age of 71. The collection, published one year after his death, contains fine examples of the unique calligraphic style (called Chusache, or Chusa Script) developed by Kim Jeong-hui during his later years, as well as some important biographical information.
