About This Item

30 pages with 17 color loose plates. Elephant folio (17 1/2" x 12") issued in original publisher's hard bound slipcase. First edition.

The Center for Pre-Columbian Studies at Dumbarton Oaks is fortunate to have in its collection an outstanding group of ceramics from the Classic Maya civilization, which flourished from about AD 300 to 900 in southern Mexico and Central America. Seventeen of these are illustrated and described in this catalog. Those few vases not shown are (1) already published in sufficient detail, (2) of slight artistic or iconographic interest, or (3) so much restored as to show little of the Maya artist's intention. It was believed that publishing these magnificent works of art in the fullest form possible, a contribution will be made to the study of this extraordinary native American civilization.
