Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stephens' two expeditions to Mexico and Central America in 1839 and 1841 yielded the first solid information on the culture of the Maya Indians. The books in this two-volume set relate his archeological discoveries and exploration of ruined cities, monuments, and temples with penetrating and exciting narrative. Remarkably realistic illustrations by Frederick Catherwood double the appeal of the books.

Synopsis:

Volume 1 of two-volume work. Almost single-handed discovery of Maya culture; exploration of ruined cities, monuments, temples; customs of Indians. Short biographical note and 32 illustrations by Frederick Catherwood. Includes 19 chapters.

Synopsis:

Volume 1 of two-volume work. Almost single-handed discovery of Maya culture; exploration of ruined cities, monuments, temples; customs of Indians. Total in set: 115 drawings.
