About this Item

The second edition, 347 pages of text and 64 plates with corresponding descriptions. 'In the beautifully carved blocks of Maya glypoc writing are embodied the accumulated knowledge of the centuries, the Maya ways of thought, and perchance the answers to other problems. Perhaps a full understanding of this glyphic literature may reveal the workings of that strange mentality which led the Maya to the chart the heavens, yet fail to grasp the principle of the wheel; to visualize eternity, as no other primitive people has ever done, yet ignore the short step from corbeled to true arch; to excel in the impractical, yet fail in the practical." FINE HARDCOVER, VERY GOOD- DUST JACKET. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 020638
