This article reconstructs the fate of Peruvian libraries and archives during the Chilean occupation of Lima between 1881 and 1883. This reconstruction is based on printed and primary sources, some of them hitherto unpublished. The article argues that the pillage of Lima’s documentary and bibliographical repositories responded to quite explicit instructions from the Chilean government, and offers insights on the effects that those actions had on the development of both Peruvian and Chilean historiographical traditions.
