From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 [gcide]:

  Quipu \Qui"pu\, n.; pl. {Quipus}. [Peruv. quipu a knot.]
     A contrivance employed by the ancient Peruvians, Mexicans,
     etc., as a substitute for writing and figures, consisting of
     a main cord, from which hung at certain distances smaller
     cords of various colors, each having a special meaning, as
     silver, gold, corn, soldiers. etc. Single, double, and triple
     knots were tied in the smaller cords, representing definite
     numbers. It was chiefly used for arithmetical purposes, and
     to register important facts and events. [Written also
     {quipo}.] --Tylor.
     [1913 Webster]
  
           The mysterious science of the quipus . . . supplied the
           Peruvians with the means of communicating their ideas
           to one another, and of transmitting them to future
           generations.                             --Prescott.
     [1913 Webster]
