Memories of the Viceroys who have governed Peru) (Volume I)

At the end of the government of a Viceroy, this authority prepared a memorial in which he reported on the events lived in the kingdom during his administration, the possibilities that could be exploited in the future, among other matters. The aim was that the new Viceroy could learn this first-hand information, in such a way, that he could take advantage of the experience of the last government. This incredible source for political and social history was compiled by Manuel Atanasio Fuentes in the nineteenth century and is currently available on Internet.

Volume I: dedicated to the Virreyes Juan de Mendoza y Luna, marqués de Montesclaros; Francisco de Borja y Aragón, príncipe de Esquilache; Baltasar de la Cueva, conde de Castellar; and  Melchor de Liñán y Cisneros
