"The first telegraph in Chile was opened to the public in 1852. The next quarter century was one of telegraph pioneering during which the core of an internal public service system was created and two international lines were constructed. This volume attempts to trace the growth of telegraphy in Chile during that quarter-century, to show how the problems of financing and administering were met, and to demonstrate the influence of the new mode of communications upon the nation's political, economic, and social structure." - Preface. ; Stanford University Publications.
