Not illustrated. 1911 edition. Excerpt: ... valuation, 0.22 bolivianos ($0,088) per kilo. POPULATION OF POTOSI.

The town of Quillacollo, situated in one of the most beautiful and fertile regions of the Republic, is justly celebrated for its healthful and salubrious climate, as well as its picturesqueness.
