Book Description Yale University Press, 1981. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Included. 1st Edition. Folio. xxi+257 pages with tables, figures, plates and bibliography. Folio (12 1/4" x 9 1/4") bound in black cloth with silver lettering to spine and silver pictorial to cover. Foreword by Michael Coe. First edition. Lin Crocker and Michael D Coe first designated a well defined group of vessels as "codex style" because they resembled the style of codices of the ancient Maya and because they believed that the artists who created these Maya masterpieces were the ones who were accustomed to bark paper books of the ancient Maya. From this assumption Francis Robicsek presented the theory most likely to revolutionize Classic Maya research, that the vases not only looked, but placed in the proper sequence, the are the codices. To support this postulate, Robicsek visited Maya sites, institutional and private ceramic collections world-wide, and with the able assistance of anthropologist-hieroglypher, Donald Hales, made the first complete study of the particular Maya ceramic style which encompasses all known examples. With this task completed, Robicsek and Hales ended up with what Mayaists searched for for a long time, a tentative sequence of funerary ceramics which represent the "Book of the Dead of the Maya." Their studies in codex style and non-codex-style ceramics modified the ordered sequence itself somewhat, but the principle of the "ceramic codex" with mythological vase paintings serving as "pages" will undoubtedly continue to provide an entirely novel and firm basis for research in Maya ceramic art, history and religion. Condition: Light edge wear. Jacket spine ends chipped with some loss, edges with closed tears, small chips and creases else a better than very good copy in about a very good jacket.
