Description
Francisco Garcia Calderon's bound manuscript (1896) entitled "Replica al Alegato del Ecuador" and two preliminary drafts were compiled between 1892 and 1896 to document the history of border disputes between Peru and Ecuador over the provinces of Mainas, Jaen and Tumbes. Also included is a bound file (1876-1909) related to a contract between the Peruvian government and Nicolas Federic Barbier and Tranquille Stanislas Fenestre, French citizens, for the construction of lighthouses along the Peruvian coast. The collection is arranged in two series: 1) BORDER DISPUTES and 2) LIGHTHOUSE DISPUTE.
