Illustrations from Nueva Corónica y Buen Gobierno, c. 1615, by Felipe Guaman Poma de Ayala (1535-1616)

Felipe Guaman Poma de Ayala, a Quechua nobleman, sent this hand-written chronicle to King Philip III of Spain (1578-1621). Inside the manuscript, Felipe Guaman Poma de Ayala included a narrative of Inca and pre-Inca ruling times (if sometimes inaccurate) as well as description on the Spanish colonial rule following their conquest from the 1530′s. Felipe Guaman Poma de Ayala was known for his outspoken views on the horrible treatment that natives from the Andean Mountains were subjected to by the Spanish.
