About this Item

The first Mexican edition of Von Hagen's work on pre-Columbian papermaking, published a year earlier in the U.S. as Aztec and Maya Papermakers. With an introduction by Dard Hunter, the preeminent authority on handmade paper -- to whom this edition of the book is dedicated -- and a prologue by Dr. Alfonso Caso, the Mexican archaeologist, which does not appear in the American edition. One of 750 numbered copies. With 39 pages of photographs and two handmade paper samples tipped in. Also with a fold-out frontispiece reproducing four pages from the Maya Dresden Codex, on huun paper, the traditional paper of the Mayans since the Classic Maya period. Bookplate front pastedown; stamp to rear flyleaf; foxing to top edge. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with shallow chipping to the crown. An 1881 pamphlet on Mexican paper as an article of tribute is laid in; owner signature; otherwise the pamphlet is fine. An attractive and elaborate edition of this book. Unless otherwise noted, our first editions are first printings. Bookseller Inventory # 029131
