From the Introduction (p. 17):
Three principles have guided the present author: To correlate the information in the ancient writings of the Conquistador historians and check it with the results of archaeological research and excavation in modern times; to recheck these sources of information by references to all pages of Old World history which appear to have any bearing on them; and to mould the whole with such simplicity and elegance as he may command into a narrative of history of the most remarkable culture discovered in the New World.”
Lacking dj, and cloth covers well-worn and faded, but a very serviceable VG- copy of an early study which, despite the theme implied by the title, remains and important contribution to the study of the advanced civilization of the Maya.
