This book is the revised and enlarged edition from the Sallim Kyongje written by 洪萬選（Hong Man-seon , 1643–1715), a Silhak scholar in the late Joseon Dynasty. The revision is done by柳重臨 (Yu Jung-rim, 1705-1771), a physician during the reign of King Yeongjo (1724–1776) of the Joseon Dynasty . “Sallim Kyongje” literally means “economy of agriculture and forestry”.

It also elaborates on the farming of animals, fish, and bees (牧養Mok Yang) ; the storing, cooking, and processing of food (治膳 Chi Seon ) ; emergency treatments (救急 Gu Geup) ; emergency procedures for droughts (救荒 Gu Hwang ) ; pandemics control (辟瘟 Byeok On ) ; pests control (辟蟲 Byeok Choong); medicine (治藥 Chi Yak ); fortune telling (選擇 Sun Taek) ; methods of preserving and conserving swords, pottery, musical instruments and other tools (雜方 Jap Bang ). The revised and augmented edition also includes 四時纂要사시찬요, and 田家占候.
