Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This volume contains chapters 12 through 38 of book 13 and
chapters 1 through 19 (all) of book 14 of the author's monumental history. Although the
other volumes not processed for the files contain considerable data on the natural
environment of the Inka, the volume presented here includes most of the information which
Cobo wrote on the Inka culture. A great variety of subjects are treated, some in detail and
all in an eminently readable style. Cobo's writings are considered to be among the best of
the chronicles of Peru and are a primary source for a study of the Inka. Although for the
most part they are the result of original observances by Cobo, in some cases he takes data
directly from other writhers without acknowledgement.
