by Bandelier, A. F.
Cupples, Upham, and Company,
x, 326pp, illus. Some dampstaining to the foredge, a few pages soiled some others with edges chipped, library stamps and owner's name on title page. All that said, the fragile book has been rebound in cloth with the original front laid down on the cover, thus a tight, useable volume. Adolph Francis Alphonse Bandelier (1840 Ð 1914) was born in Bern, Switzerland and emigrated to the United States as a youth. After 1880 he devoted himself to archaeological and ethnological work among the Indians of the southwestern United States, Mexico and South America. Beginning his studies in Sonora (Mexico), Arizona and New Mexico, he made himself the leading authority on the history of this region, and Ñ with F. H. Cushing and his successors Ñ one of the leading authorities on its prehistoric civilization. In this study his narrative takes him from Tampico the city of Mexico with studies about Cholula and an excursion to Mitla.
