In three volumes this set intends to “…support research on the Prehispanic, colonial, and republican periods of the Andean region of South America” (xi).  Specifically, the work focuses on texts and authors from this area in the 16th-19th century.  More than a bibliographic inventory, throughout, the set pairs inventory with essay, to provide historical/social/cultural context and meaning.

Examples include: Visitas, Censuses and other Sources of Population Information; Chronicles of the Andes in the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries; Alessandro Malaspina (1754-1810); Indigenous Texts, Charles Robert Darwin (1809-1882).
