The Blood of Kings

£30.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

The Blood of Kings - Dynasty and Ritual in Maya Art brings together new information about the history of Maya civilisation, which rose, declined and fell long before the discovery of America by the Europeans. By making full use of the tremendous progress in deciphering the complicated Maya heiroglyphic code that has taken place since 1960, this groundbreaking work effectively penetrates the world and minds of the creators of Maya art.

Beautifully illustrated throughout with large colour plates. Large hardback, in very good condition, red cloth boards unmarked, but dust cover is rubbed on reverse and has small tears on spine.

Superb illustrated volume and very hard to find.
