II PRINCIPAL VOYAGES AND EXPEDITIONS BEFORE THE OPENING OF KOREA
A. FRANCESCO CARLETTI’S VISIT TO JAPAN (1597-8)
Francesco Carletti was a Florentine who visited Japan in 1597-8. Although he did not actually set foot in Korea, his record is of special interest because .he saw a number of Korean slaves who had been brought back by Hideyoshi’s invading armies and purchased five of them for a small amount of money. On leaving Japan, he took the Koreans with him and set them free in Goa. However, one of them, named Antonio Corea, accompanied Carletti back to Italy, which they finally reached in 1606, At the time Carletti’s discourse was written, Antonio Corea was living in Rome; but nothing further is known about the life of this Korean in Renaissance Italy.

B. THE WRECK OF THE “SPERWER” AND HAMEL’S CAPTIVITY IN KOREA DURING THE YEARS 1653-1666
Hendrick Hamel was supercargo on the Dutch ship “Sperwer” (Sparrowhawk), which sailed from Texel Island in January, 1653. The “Sperwer” was bound for Nagasaki, but after visiting Batavia and Formosa, was wrecked in a storm off Quelpart Island. Thirty-six of the crew reached the shore alive and were made prisoners by the Koreans, who used as interpreter a certain John Wetterre, seized many years earlier, in 1627, while he and two companions were ashore drawing water for the Dutch ship “Ouderkress.”

A long period of captivity followed, at first in Seoul and later in the provinces. Finally, after several unsuccessful attempts, eight of the Hollanders, including Hamel, escaped in a fishing-boat and reached the Goto Islands, whence they were able to make their way to Deshima, the Dutch trading-post. Return to Holland was effected by way of Batavia in 1668.

Hamel’s narrative, published in the same year, is a straightforward account of his experien- ces, and its popularity may be gauged by its inclusion in so many of the collections of voyages and travels which appeared in later years.

D. CAPTAIN BROUGHTON’S VOYAGE IN H.M.S. PROVIDENCE (1795-8)
After accompanying Vancouver in his voyage of discovery and surveying the Columbia River, Capt. Broughton was put in command of the “Providence,” a small vessel of 400 tons burden, and sent to the north-west coast of North America. During the next four years he carried out a close survey of the coast of Asia. On 16th May, 1797, the “Providence” struck on a reef near the coast of Formosa and became a total loss; the crew, however, were all saved and were taken to Macao in the tender in which Capt. Broughton continued the survey until May, 1798, when he returned to England.

Lyra, left Spithead on 9th Feb., 1816 and anchored off the the Pei-ho on 28th July, Lord Amherst landed on 9th Aug. and directed the ship to meet him at Canton, whither he would travel overland from Peking. Capt. Maxwell took the opportunity of exploring the Gulf of Pechili, the West Coast of Korea and the Loo-Choo Islands. On arriving off the mouth of the Canton River on 2nd Nov., his passage was disputed and he silenced the Chinese batteries by a single broadside. Lord Amherst re-embarked at Whampoa. Subsequently, the “Alceste” struck a rock and was lost during her transit through the Straits of Gaspar, but the crew were saved. On the return voyage, Capt. Maxwell was presented to Napoleon Bonaparte at St, Helena and arrived back in England in Aug., 1817.
