An extraordinary copy. "Our impression of the paintings prior to the first edition of THE CAVE PAINTINGS OF BAJA CALIFORNIA was based on a relatively small number found at the most accessible sites. Even though these included the largest painted cave, it took the work of one dedicated photographer-explorer [read, Harry Crosby!] to reveal the extent of the peninsula's painted rockshelters. .Following at first in the footsteps of Leon Diguet, he developed his own maps and expanded his explorations throughout three mountain ranges, entering regions whose inaccessibility has seldom been paralleled in rock art research." [from the Preface]. Bookseller Inventory # 006381
