Mummies from Peru as 19th cent. illustrations

'Antigüedades Peruanas' (1851) by Peruvian museum curator Mariano Eduardo de Rivero and Swiss naturalist Dr Johann Jakob von Tschudi was a cultural and historical book, full of illustrations of artifacts, items and burial cuctoms from Peruvian precolombian civilizations. It was the result of their long survey and reasearch during 1830s and 1840s in Peru. And it was a scientific and artistic achievement of their time. The drawings of peruvian mummies are very impressive. You can see all illustrations of the book scanned in Flickr
