About this Item

173 pages with figures, tables, plates, maps and appendix. Quarto (11 3/4" x 9 1/4") issued in wrappers. Transactions of the American Philosophical Society, New Series, volume 57, part 2. First edition. Wallrath has written a very large report on a very small dig - three stratigraphic pits, a hearth and an oven were excavated. The Isthmus of Tehuantepec has been at least touched by many peoples and cultures, and its complex archaeology remains very little known; Wallrath's is therefore a proportionately large contribution to our knowledge of it. The major aspect of interest to many in Wallrath's report will be his use of the Type-Variety Method. He has used the binomial scheme for naming his ceramic units, and the results are so sequipedalian as to make it clear that this rather peripheral aspect of the method urgently needs revision. The figures of Tehuantepec, many of them highly distinctive, are the object of special study; a detailed classification is presented at length. This would have been strengthened by the inclusion of other available published and museum collections from Tehuantepec, although it stands as a solid beginning even without them. (American Anthropologist:70, 1234) Condition: Spine and edges sunned, corners bumped, slight wear to edges else a very good copy. Bookseller Inventory # BOOKS007413
