The expedition undertaken by Le Maire and Schouten was equipped in 1615 by Le Maire's father for the Australische Compagnie. This company attempted to circumvent the VOC's patent by finding an alternative route to Indonesia. Schouten and Le Maire succeeded in their quest by sailing around Vuurland instead of through the Magellan Straits. But despite their discovery of a new route, their expedition was not very successful. Once they reached Batavia their story was not believed and their remaining vessel, the Eendracht, was confiscated along with its cargo.
Schouten and Le Maire discovered a number of islands in the Pacific, including the island of Hoorn where they bartered with the local population for food. Cf. Universiteitsbibliotheek, Amsterdam, inv. nr. OK 80 647, after p. 152.
