Garcilaso de la Vega is the subject of a new biographical study, published both in Peru and Spain in recent years, the Lima edition having been issued in 1945 and the Spanish, which has just come to hand, is the product of the Instituto de Cultura Hispanica presses in Madrid (1948). It is an interesting and scholarly volume of some 300 pages by D. Aurelio Miro Quesada y Sosa, noted Peruvian author and dean of the faculty of letters of the University of San Marco in Lima, which is the oldest university in the western world.
