1852 Yucatan Incidents of Travel John Stephens MAYA Chiapas Illustrated 2v Archaeology

John Stephens was an important 19th-century English explorer whose account of his voyages in Central America became extremely popular and were highly detailed. Stephens covers his experience with the ruins of the Mayan civilization and interactions with Chiapas and Yucatan people. Visiting over 40 different sites from 1839-40, Stephens and his crew are credited with ‘rediscovering’ the Mayans and bringing the lost civilization back to the mind of the Western world. This work, ‘Incidents of Travel in Central America’ is a popular travelogue describing Guatemala, Costa Rica, and the Yucatan, all with impressive Frederick Catherwood illustrations.
