£39.99

Product description

The Tiahuanaco ruins are certainly very ancient: in this text, the author, like others, argues that the evidence of calcified remains of marine plants 11,500 feet up on the plateau shows that it was originally at sea level, and therefore predates the great catastrophe and flood.

Pale blue cloth covered boards with stylised red design to front and gilt text to spine, the title within a red panel. Boards are faded at edges, and the spine particularly so. Superficial scuffs, marks and shelf wear to boards and spine. Numerical stamp and b lue pencilled price on front pastedown, printed name on sticker to front endpaper.Fly leaf is slightly creased. Text block is clean and tight, and lightly but evenly tanned.
