Abstract: This document contains some interesting information on upper-class styles of life and characteristic privileges. Further data on the integration of ancestor worship and the class structure is included. The over-all treatment is sketchy, yet the information, in most respects, agrees with other sources and in some areas extends the range of information on the yangban class in Korea. A brief discussion of the examination system, educational practices, and talent mobility is also interwoven into the text.
