Pottery Southwest.
Albuquerque Archaeological Society
Aluquerque: Albuquerque Archaeological Society, 1974-96. Quarterly periodical. This is a complete run from Volume I Number 0 (a one page prospectus soliciting subscriptions and articles) through Volume 23 Number 1. Issues are from four to fourteen pages, most six or eight. Very good in a basic clip binder. According to the prospectus, "Pottery Southwest will contain brief contributions on current research projects of the pottery of the southwest. This area includes Arizona, New Mexico, western Texas and Oklahoma, southern Colorado, Utah and Nevada, and northern Mexico." Additionally the journal had letters, announcements, notices, reviews and pretty much anything else of interest to the archaeological community. Initially, there were occasional line drawings graduating to photocopied photos and at least one color insert. Obviously a nonprofit, volunteer project, the effort had a pretty good run.
