Hugo Kunz describes Atacama and Chile in 1890

Hugo Kunz (*1852 - +1900) published two relevant books on Atacama and Chile: "The Revolution and a detailed description of Chilean reality" (a) around 1890 and "Chile and the German Colonies" (b). The books were published in German. The descriptions of KUNZ are interesting in that they illustrate the end of "silver rush" and the general economic decline of ore mining.
The book "Chile and the German Colonies" had the purpose to create a handbook, which gives the emigrant but also the businessman a real impression of Chile. KUNZ therefore publishes detailed lists of economic activities, for example of the railway companies.
It should be mentioned that KUNZ put the railways into the foreground, in all his books references are to be found.
