Item Description: 1915. Approximately 1,657 lithographic and autotype plates, including 890 hand-colored lithographs. Quarto and oblong folio. Uniform contemporary gold-tooled red morocco, t.e.g. Some spines evenly faded. Oblong volumes in similar contemporary red half morocco, t.e.g., original wrappers and Botany indices bound in 3 separate volumes in contemporary red half cloth. A superb, remarkable set. Provenance: Frederick DuCane Godman (armorial bookplates). The Editor's Copy: An extraordinary set of one of the greatest works of American Natural History and Archeology The editor's copy of the most comprehensive study of Central American wildlife, in fine condition, and the most complete set to have appeared on the market in the past thirty-five years. The Biologia is one of the towering achievements of natural history research in the Americas, and remains fundamental to the study of Neotropical plants and animals to this day. Almost 19,000 separate subjects are depicted in the plates, and over 50,000 species described, of which almost 20,000 were first noted here. In addition, the extraordinary segment on archeology by Alfred Maudslay remains vital to Mayan studies to this day. Because of the massive nature of the work, its extended period of publication, and because subscribers could purchase sections of the work without subscribing to the whole, most holdings of the work are fragmentary. Since this is Godman's own copy, in superb condition, it is certainly the finest in existence. Frederick DuCane Godman, who conceived, authored, and underwrote the Biologia, was born into a wealthy English family in 1834 (his father was a partner in the British brewer Whitbread). After study at Eton and Cambridge, where he met his later co-author Osbert Salvin, he embarked on a career of studies in ornithology and entomology. In 1861 Godman and Salvin visited Central America together, the first of a number of trips that led to their conception of the Biologia , project. Work on it began in 1876, and the first volumes were published in 1879. Publication was spread over the next 36 years, with six or seven parts coming out annually. Most of the research for the project was done in the 1870's and 1880's, after which both men were hampered by ill-health. Salvin died in 1898, and publication only terminated with World War I; Godman died in 1919. The entire Biologia project was conceived and executed at the highest level of scholarship and execution of production, with almost 900 colored plates. It remains the single greatest published resource for New World natural history. It is still a vital reference tool, ever more so today as issues of biodiversity and extinction move to the forefront of scientific inquiry. It is also a work of great beauty, produced on a level of lavishness that would be impossible today. Although it was not part of the original conception of the work, Godman made the fortunate decision to include a section of Central American archeology. This section was edited by Alfred Maudslay, another Cambridge polymath who became intrigued by the Mayan ruins in Guatemala in 1880. Maudslay spent the next two decades exploring the sites of Tikal, Copan, Quirigua and Yaxchilan, as well as Chichen Itza. He made careful measurements and took hundreds of photographs, many of them reproduced in colotype in four folio atlases in the Biologia . His photographs and casts documented many sites later disturbed or plundered. Michael Coe says "It is impossible to exaggerate the importance to Maya research of Maudslay's published work." Coe goes on to call Maudslay the greatest single recorder of Mayan inscriptions. A massive and important pictorial work of American natural history, in what is certainly the finest copy extant. British Museum Natural History Catalogue , p.687; Coe, Breaking the Maya Code , pp. 110-112; Taxonomic Literature 2, 2627 (botanical section). 66, comprising 240 natural history parts and 17 archaeology parts.

Publisher's blue cloth, gilt lettered spines. The complete coleoptera section of this highly important work on the fauna and flora of Central America. 'The best example of an entomologist who devoted his main efforts to the study of exotic faunas was H.W. Bates (1825-1892). In his early career he spent more than ten years in South America, partly in company with the famous A.R. Wallace; he was a great general biologist, the first to discover the form of mimicry in butterflies that afterwards was named after him. He worked on different insect groups, with his first paper published in 1843. After 1870 he almost exclusively turned to Coleoptera and may be termed the father of coleopterology not only for tropical America, as manifested by his volumes on Carabidae, Longicornia, and Lamellicornia in Godman & Salvin's 'Biologia Centrali-Americana' (Smith, R.T., History of Entomology p. 145).The whole work was published in 215 parts in 63 volumes from 1875-1915. It was 'the most thorough study of the animals, plants, and human beings of Central America ever attempted' (Nature in the New World p. 187). The zoological section described 38,637 animals, approximately half as new species and half as new genera. A very fine copy.B.M. (Nat. Hist) VI, p. 380. Bookseller Inventory # 7930

Griggs, Hanhart, and W. Purkiss. Facsimile edition. Archaeology in Biologia Centrali-Americana, Or, Contributions to the Knowledge of the Fauna and Flora of Mexico and Central America took Maudslay 13 years to complete. Originally published in 1902, the pioneering work was sold only through the renowned bookshop, Arte Primitivo in New York City. Maudslay, who from the ages of 31 to 44 devoted his life to the Maya ruins, laid the foundation on which Maya archaeology now stands. He spent the whole or a large part of eight dry seasons working among the ruins, excavating, taking notes, making photographs and preparing molds. During the lull of the rainy seasons, he assembled the material, wrote the narrative and supervised the work of skilled artists employed to render drawings of the glyphs in restored condition. The first two bound volumes present drawings and photographs of Maya ruins on an extraordinary scale, the pages measuring 11 ¾ inches high and 18 inches wide. The next two volumes contain Maudslay’s commentary and an appendix on archaic calendars by J. T. Goodman. The introduction is by Francis Robicsek, adjunct professor of anthropology at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte, and chairman of the department of thoracic cardiovascular surgery at the Charlotte Memorial Hospital and Medical Center. Condition: Page ends soiled else a very good set issued without jackets. Bookseller Inventory # A0049

Item Description: London. -1902 [1974]., 1889. Six volumes bound in four. Two large oblong folios. Two quarto text volumes. Plates. Original blue cloth. Fine condition. Reprint edition of one of the great monuments in the history of Mayan studies, Alfred Maudslay's photographs and drawings of a number of the major Mayan sites, such as Quirigua, Copan, Chichen Itza, Palenque and Yaxchilan, executed during his explorations in Central America between 1881 and 1900. Maudslay was an amateur archaeologist, but he was fascinated by the Mayan ruins and set himself the task of recording the architecture and monuments. He worked with a large wet-plate camera, developing his photographs on the spot. He also made extensive casts. Michael Coe says, "It is impossible to exaggerate the importance to Maya research of Maudslay's published work. For the first time, Maya epigraphers had large-scale, incredibly accurate illustrations of complete Classic texts." Coe also credits Maudslay with being the greatest recorder of Mayan inscriptions. These illustrations are still essential to anyone studying Mayan iconography, and are one of the great monuments of pre-Columbian studies. Coe, BREAKING THE MAYA CODE, pp.110-12.

Item Description: University of Oklahoma Press Norm, Norman. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 907 pages. Hardcover as issued without dustjacket. New book. BIOLOGY. "Archaeology in Biologia Centrali-Americana, Or, Contributions to the Knowledge of the Fauna and Flora of Mexico and Central America" took Maudslay 13 years to complete. Originally published in 1902, the pioneering work was sold only through the renowned bookshop, Arte Primitivo in New York City. It now is being distributed throughout North America by the OU Press. Maudslay, who from the ages of 31 to 44 devoted his life to the Maya ruins, laid the foundation on which Maya archaeology now stands. He spent the whole or a large part of eight dry seasons working among the ruins, excavating, taking notes, making photographs and preparing molds. During the lull of the rainy seasons, he assembled the material, wrote the narrative and supervised the work of skilled artists employed to render drawings of the glyphs in restored condition. The first two bound volumes present drawings and photographs of Maya ruins on an extraordinary scale, the pages measuring 11 ¾ inches high and 18 inches wide. The next two volumes contain Maudslay s commentary and an appendix on archaic calendars by J. T. Goodman. The introduction is by Francis Robicsek, adjunct professor of anthropology at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte, and chairman of the department of thoracic cardiovascular surgery at the Charlotte Memorial Hospital and Medical Center. Robicsek is the author of The Smoking Gods: Tobacco in Maya Art, History, and Religion and the co-author with Donald Hales of The Maya Book of the Dead: The Ceramic Codex, both available from the OU Press.
