About This Item

440 pages. Quarto (11 ¼ " x 7 ¾ ") bound green buckram with gilt lettering to spine. From the library of George M Foster. Second edition. .

Cecilio A Robelo (1839 - 1916) was an attorney by trade, but passionately interested in the archaeology of Mexico and the foremost nahuatlato of his day. He was the first director of the Museum of Archaeology. This dictionary, first published in parts in the Anales of the Museo (1905 & 08), was a ground-breaking undertaking, matching the gods and goddesses of the Aztecs to their representations in the codices and archaeological remains. The volume is well illustrated, for that reason, although he did not manage to go beyond the letter "q" in this work: later editions by other hands have completed the work..

George McClelland Foster, Jr born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on October 9, 1913, died on May 18, 2006, at his home in the hills above the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, where he served as a professor from 1953 to his retirement in 1979, when he became professor emeritus. His contributions to anthropological theory and practice still challenge us; in more than 300 publications, his writings encompass a wide diversity of topics, including acculturation, long-term fieldwork, peasant economies, pottery making, public health, social structure, symbolic systems, technological change, theories of illness and wellness, humoral medicine in Latin America, and worldview. The quantity, quality, and long-term value of his scholarly work led to his election to the National Academy of Sciences in 1976. Virtually all of his major publications have been reprinted and/or translated. Provenance from the executor of Foster's library laid in.


Foster's stamp on title and date of acquiry (10/4/44) on front end paper, spine sunned and gilt faded, paste downs offset darkening else about very good.
