Sipan by  Walter Alva - 1st Edition - 1994 - from Brass DolphinBooks and


by Alva, Walter

Condition: Near Fine/Very Good+

Lima: Cervecceria, 1994. Book. Near Fine. Hardcover. 1st Edition. An unusual and hard to describe item. Text is in Spanish (I do not believe an English language version was done) massive, heavily illustrated, 325 page volume. I have very little Spanish and am using guesswork, (in part) in making this description. Edition may not be correct, but the title's printing seems to have been very small. Book is extraordinarily well-made and lightly used. Perhaps a hint of corner tip fade is present. Given that the book come from Lima and the subjects look Incan to my untutored eye, I assume that the pre-Columbian society or a sub-set of it, of the region is the subject of the multitude of fotografs and the writing. Jacket is handsome but a trifle worn with mild scar/scuff back panel. No ISBN is present. Domestic media mail shipping at our usual one-book price. Too large by far for flat rate standard fast or international shipping. Fast domestic possible, international will be heartbreakingly costly. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately. Books listed by Brass Dolphin are so described, and graded, using the strict, traditional standards. For this reason, we have virtually zero returns.*.
