Comparing the arts of Teotihuacan - not previously judged 'artistic' - with those of other ancient civilizations, the author demonstrates how they created and reflected the community's ideals. Most people associate the pyramids of central Mexico with the Aztecs, but these colossal constructions antedate the Aztecs by more than a thousand years. The people of Teotihuacan, who built the pyramids as part of a city of unprecedented size, remain a mystery." from the jacket flap. Not Price Clipped. Pristine, no wear. Clean, tight and strong binding with no underlining, highlighting or marginalia. Green paper-covered boards with gilt lettering to spinet.
