Comments
Artist's rendition of various types of people and animals ( e.g., vicuna, llama) in colonial Peru, each type shown and identified by a letter, e.g., D, "mulata" (mulatto woman); E, "Negro criado" (black servant); F, "Mulata, aelmodo qandan a Caballo" (mulatto woman riding a horse). In the background (G) is a coach or calash used in Lima. On pp. 70-71, the author discusses and compares the labor performed by blacks, mulattoes and Europeans.
