Description:

First English language edition limited to 2000 copies INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY WILLIAM SPRATLING. 32 pages of text followed by 64 pages of plates. Hardcover; H 28cm x L 21cm. Dust jacket rubbed, spine paper faded and chipped at head with shallow chip at heel, large chip at bottom of front panel, strong vertical crease to rear panel with short closed tear at bottom edge; dj now presented in a mylar Brodart protector. Black cloth with gilt stamped lettering on spine and gilt stamped figure on front board. Color illustrations of the Gulf Coast of Mexico by Luis Covarrubias on both sets of endpapers. Frontispiece. Preface by Gordon F. Ekholm. Archaeological notes by Alfonso Medellin Zenil. Photographs by Manuel Alvarez Bravo. 21 illustrations within the text (including frontis) followed by 64 black/white or sepia-toned plates. MORE HUMAN THAN DIVINE is an uncommon book in which Spratling examines pre-Columbian Mexican ceramics, the images and styles of which greatly influenced Spratling's silver designs. Although it is unmentioned in the book, many of the photographed pieces were part of Spratling's personal collection which he donated to UNAM, an act which was not entirely charitable since various Mexican authorities were more than upset at Spratling's persistent dabbling in illegal artifact trading. A very good+ copy in a very good- dust jacket free of any of the usual internal foxing with Spratling's undated inscription upon the half-title page. Description copyright David Hallinan, Bookseller.
