Peru stamps

P=have O=don’t have it

Flag of Peru

Peru is the third largest country in South America - Brazil and Argentina are larger. The first white people to reach Peru were led by the Spanish adventurer Francisco Pizarro in the 1520's. The Spanish conquered Peru and made it a Spanish colony in the 1530's. It remained a Spanish Colony till Peru declared its independence from Spain in 1821. From the time of Spanish conquest Spanish was the only official language. In 1975 the Peruvian government made Quechua, the language of the Inca, an official language in addition to Spanish.

Stamps were issued in Peru by the Pacific Steam Navigation Company in 1857

The first stamps to be issued by Peru was in 1858

Large parts of Peru were occupied by Chile between 1879-1882, including the capital Lima, during which time stamps of Chile were in use. As a result many towns issued their own local stamps. During this period the Peruvian government made its seat at Arequipa. Stamps were also issued in Arequipa during the civil war of 1884-85 by the rebels.
