About this Item

A novel about the Stephens and Catherwood trips through southern Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and the Yucatan peninsula in the 1830s that rediscovered the ruins of the Mayan civilization, record of which had been lost to Europeans by the 19th century, and was entirely new to Americans. Their two books -- Incidents of Travel in the Yucatan and Incidents of Travel in Central America, Chiapas and the Yucatan -- were popular, colorful accounts that were also archeologically important for the highly detailed drawings Catherwood did of the ruins and glyphic writings of the Mayans. Signed by the author,who was representing himself as Native American at the time but was discovered after his death to have no connection to Native American ancestors or tribes. Owner gift inscription on half-title. One corner bumped; very near fine in fine jacket. Unless otherwise noted, our first editions are first printings. Bookseller Inventory # 003016
