This bibliography was completed by the students of the "Catedra de Literatura Peruana y Americana", which means "Chair of the Peruvian and American Literature." The work for this bibliography was done under the supervision of Dr. Elsa Villanueva. Although this work does not have an introduction, the table of contents provides the titles of the magazines and journals, as well as the years covered. Magazines and journals beginning from 1897 to 1963 can be found in this bibliography.There are a total of 58 pages in this bibliography. Like most bibliographies, an entry number is assigned to each annotation. In this case, the entry number starts at 1 and goes to 601. The continuing number is supposed to be 602, but due to error (most likely) it skips it and goes straight to entry number 902. So, the entries go from 1-601 and 902-2889 for a total of 2588 entries. It is important to note that while looking through the annotations, there would sometimes be mistakes in entry numbers. For example, a number might be missing. Each annotation provides the title of the article, the magazine or journal it is located, issue, year, page, and entry number. There is no index, but there is a page of references in the back. This page details the authors that were used when compiling materials for this bibliography. The entry number that corresponds to these references is also noted.
