Folding map in volume one (some browning, inexpertly repaired on verso).

Provenance: Bookplate of Mabel Choate; Burndy Library and Dibner Library (Smithsonian Institution Libraries) bookplates to front pastedown of both volumes. First edition of Stephens's companion volume to "Incidents of Travel in Central America, Chiapas, and Yucatan" first published in 1841: "Stephens provided accurate, detailed descriptions of the ruins, and he was the first to establish that the many Mayan sites were part of a single civilization that existed up to the time of the Spanish conquest and that the Indians were the direct descendants of that civilization" (ANB). These two volumes contain the important engravings of Frederick Catherwood (1799-1854): "In 1836 he met the American traveller John Lloyd Stephens, who was attending Burford's panorama of Jerusalem.Stephens and Catherwood developed plans to bring their travel and architectural expertise to bear on American antiquities. Rumours of cities lost in the Central American jungles had circulated since the 1820s, when the Spanish colonies won their independence and non-Hispanic European travellers visited the region in increasing numbers.In September 1839 Catherwood signed a contract with Stephens to illustrate the ruins, with Stephens supplying the written narrative [I]n October 1839, he and Stephens at once set out for the ancient Mayan city of Copan, which lay in a remote valley near independent Honduras's northern boundary with Guatemala. They arrived in November and commenced the first large-scale survey of Mayan ruins, visiting such other Mayan sites as Quirigua in Guatemala and Palenque in southern Mexico. Catherwood cleared away the entangled vegetation covering the ruins to enable the use of his camera lucida. At Palenque, despite suffering from malaria contracted within a month of his arrival in Central America, he made maps and over fifty drawings "In June 1841 Stephens published Incidents of Travel in Central America, Chiapas, and Yucatan, which instantly earned the authors great accolades on both sides of the Atlantic.
