About this Item: Peabody Museum Press, Cambridge, 1952. Original Wrappers. Condition: Very Good. First Edition. x+139 pages with 114 figures, 39 tables, appendices and index. Folio (14" x 11") issued in wrappers with black lettering to spine and cover. Sections by W C Root and Tatiana Proskouriakoff. Appendix by William Harvey. Memoirs of the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, volume X, number 2. First edition. The following work describe and illustrate objects of metal which were dredged from the Cenote of Sacrifice at Chichen Itza, Yucatan, by the late Edward H Thompson. Chichen Itza was holy because it embraced the famous Cenote of Sacrifice, known to the Maya as chen ku, "sacred well." This is a great cup-like depression some 164 by 200 feet in diameter with vertical overhanging walls. The water averages 35 feet in depth and covers an equal depth of silt. The color of the water is usually murky green but each year it turns blood red for a few days due to seed pods of the algae it contains. Here, it was believed, dwelt gods and souls of the dead ancestors. Hence for centuries, in order to appease its inhabitants, all kinds of offerings were cast in the Cenote. In the years from 1904 to 1907, E H Thompson, then owner of Chichen Itza, dredged the southern part of the Cenote. It is the metal objects from its depths which are described in this volume. Condition: Spine age darkened, heal corners bumped, light edge wear else a very good copy. Seller Inventory # A0554
