Description
Heading:
Author: Stephens, John L.
Title: Incidents of Travel in Yucatan
Place Published: New York
Publisher:Harper & Brothers
Date Published: 1841
Description:


2 volumes. 424; vii, [3], [7]-474 pp. With 65 engraved plates, made from daguerreotype views and drawings by Frederick Catherwood, and a folding map. (8vo) 22.5x14 cm ( 9x5¼"), professionally rebound in full linen over board covers, with gilt decorations from original covers inset on front covers. Remnants of gilt titles from original covers glued to spine. Two new end papers, front and rear, added as part of the restoration, in both volumes. First Edition.



This is the first edition of this classic and renowned work on Central America, one of the most important works in the field of Meso American Archeology and History. The author was the first westerner to explore the remains of the Mayan civilization after hiking through the dense Central American forest. The illustrator was an English artist with a background in Archeology. For the first time, he illustrated Mayan ruins, that had never been seen before by Westerners, spurring a movement to preserve and conserve these landmarks for all humanity. A very good copy of an essential book on Central American Archeology.

Names of two former owners inked to the original second front free end paper, fold-out map is in very good condition, with no tears or stains; very good.
