I'm looking for information regarding the rank system
used by Choson's civil service and military. Both
"Sources of Korean Tradition" and Samuel Hawley's "The
Imjin War" mention it several times, but they do not
explain it or list all the ranks (though SKT does
explain Silla's bone rank system, which makes Choson's
absence stranger).

Thank you all,
