Abstract:

"In earlier times, for the Chinese at least, Korea was the 'country of courteous people from the east', and for Westerners in the nineteenth century it was the 'land of the morning calm' or the 'hermit kingdom'."

"In this unique collection of writings and records of times past in Korea - some translated from the German and the French - the author helps to lift the veil on this once closed country (which has special relevance today given North Korea's self-imposed seclusion since 1952), providing the reader with a wide selection of first-hand accounts by travellers who 'discovered' Korea - some as snapshots by those just passing through, such as Isabella Bird, others more detailed evaluations of Korean culture and everyday life by those, like missionaries, who spent time there."

"This collection covers a period of over 400 years - from Hendrik Hamel's journal of the 1600s to early twentieth-century records like those of Roy C. Andrews' 1918 account of his expedition entitled Exploring Unknown Corners of 'Hermit Kingdom'."--Jacket.
