With writings, drawings and maps, the book recorded the diplomatic relationship between Vietnam and China in the 18th century through the journeys of the Vietnamese envoys. It was compiled and edited by Nguyen Huy Oanh (1713-1789) based on documents of previous envoys and historical records, as well as notes from his own journey in 1766-1767, during which he worked as the main envoy of the Vietnamese delegation.

According to Prof. Academician Nguyen Huy My, the 16th descendant of the Nguyen Huy - Truong Luu family, the book was copied by Nguyen Huy Trien in 1887 from the original version compiled by Nguyen Huy Oanh from 1765 to 1767 under the reign of King Le Hien Tong (1740-1786), which has been kept by the Nguyen Huy - Truong Luu family in Can Loc district.

The book, 30cm in length, 20cm in width and 2cm in thickness, was printed on “do” paper. The main content is a map of the route from Nan Guan to Beijing. There are also a variety of pictures of mountains, rivers and natural landscapes. It also describes the reception forms and the length of the road.
