Item Description: Harper & Brothers, New York, 1841. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good +. First Edition. Two vols. Octavo. pp; I; viii, (ii), 9-424; II; vii, (iii), 8-474, index & 4pp. ads; Illustrated, seventy-eight plates by Frederick Catherwood including a folding map; gilt decorated brown cloth, blind ruled; spines faded to a lighter brown, spine extremities, head & foot chipped; intermittent foxing, complete with all pates and maps. Few explorers have had the experience of uncovering a civilization almost entirely unknown to the world. But Stephen's two expeditions to Mexico and Central America in 1839 and 1841 yielded the first solid information on the culture of the Maya Indians. In this work, and in his other masterpiece Incidents of Travel in Yucatan, he tells the story of his travels to some 50 ruined Mayan cities. In this book, he describes the excitement of exploring the magnificent ruined cities of Copan and Palenque, and his briefer excursions to Quirigua, Patinamit, Utatlan, Gueguetenango, Ocosingo, and Uxmal. For all these cities, his details are so accurate that more recent explorers used the book as a Baedeker to locate ruins forgotten by even the Indians. In addition to being a great book on archaeological discovery, Stephen's work is also a great travel book. Telling of journeying by mule back on narrow paths over unimaginable deep ravines, through sloughs of mud and jungles of heavy vegetation, describing dangers of robbery, revolution, fever, mosquitoes and more exotic insects, Stephen's narrative remains penetrating and alive. His account of his attempt to buy Copan for $50 is told with the adroitness of a Mark Twain, and his descriptions of Indian life - primitive villages a few miles from the ruins, burials, treatment of the sick, customs, amusements, etc. - never lose their interest. Frederick Catherwood's illustrations virtually double the appeal of the book. Highly exact, remarkably realistic drawings show overall views, ground plans of the cities, elevations of palaces and temples, free-standing sculpture, carved hieroglyphics, stucco bas-reliefs, small clay figures, and interior details.

London: John Murray, 1841 - 1st UK Edition. 8vo - 2 volumes, viii, 424pp.; vii, [3]-474, Appendix pp, complete with 78 engraved plates and one fold-out map. Publisher's original textured brown cloth with de-bossed border ruling and bright gilt decoration on front covers. Spines with gilt decoration and titles and showing some professional restoration. Foxing throughout which is normal for this publication, Foxing is predominantly to text pages - many of the fine illustrations have retained their tissue guards and have minimal foxing; no prior ownership markings Ñ a complete copy of a significant publication. Scarce. First UK Edition of one of the most important classic works on Central America and a landmark of Mesoamerican archaeology. Stephens was the first westerner to penetrate the jungles of Central America and explore the ruins of the Mayan civilization. William Catherwood's drawings of many monumenst and buildings contributed enormously to the importance of the work. Stephens' work inspired generations of Mesoamerican scholars to preserve and explore these remarkable ruins. Catherwood's illustrations set the standard for archaeological illustration and in this case are the earliest and sometimes the only record these monuments. Stephens was appointed to a confidential American diplomatic mission to Central America in 1839. This popular travelogue describes events connected with the mission and Stephens' extensive travels in Guatemala, Costa Rica, and the Yucatan. Included are detailed descriptions and illustrations, after drawings made on the spot by Catherwood, of eight Mayan cities and their ruins. Sabin 91297. Smith S146. Bookseller Inventory # RTTX207

Item Description: Harper & Bros, New York, 1841. First edition, 2 volumes, 8vo, pp. [2], viii, 424; vii-[x], [7]-474; folding map, 68 engraved plates (2 double-page) and plans, many after Frederick Catherwood, a few illustrations in the text; original brown cloth with gilt stamped covers and spines, light wear at the spine extremities, some mild dampstaining to the covers of both volumes, but in all, a very good, sound copy. This copy with a rare inscription from the author to "Edward M. Willett, from his brother-in-law, the author." Prior to his excursions into Mesoamerica, Stephens traveled extensively in Europe and wrote two books of travel about his experiences there. While in Naples he met Dr. Marinus Willet. The doctor was the brother of Edward M. Willet, Stephens' classmate and close friend at Columbia, who became his brother-in-law upon marrying Amelia Ann, the older sister of John. Inscribed copies are very uncommon. There has been no such copy of any Stephens title at auction since before 1975. A book full of many interesting archaeological firsts, including the first accurate map of the Yucatan, the first illustrations of Mayan sites, the first descriptions of 44 ruined sites, and the first publication of Juan Perez's A True Exposition of the Method Used by the Indians for Computing Time. Field 1426 (citing the 12th edition); Sabin 91297. Bookseller Inventory # 46450
