At a Glance
Letters, reports, orders, directives, proclamations, and other official papers of two of the last Spanish Viceroys in Peru, José Fernando de Abascal y Souza (1743-1821), and Joaquín de la Pezuela (1761-1830). Most of the letters and documents are in clerical hands, with viceregal signatures and stamps, and are of a routine administrative nature. Bound in the volumes are four broadsides printed in Peru at the direction of the King of Spain. All the items originate from either Lima or Cuzco, the seat of the Spanish government. Also, one folder of notes about the volumes, primarily by Ray Trautman.
