Myths and Legends of Mexico and Peru
An illustrated history
Fourth edition. Hardback, bound in half leather with gilt titling and design to spine. 22 × 14.5cm, xiii + 367pp.
The Myths of Mexico and Peru is a compilation of myths and legends that were passed down for years in South American cultures, and, at the time of the first printing in 1914, were just being discovered by Western researchers and archaeologists as they deciphered ancient languages. The book includes a brief description of the histories and civilizations of Mexico and Peru, including the Mayans, and the myths and legends of each culture.
A good reading copy. The leather is scuffed and faded, and the boards are marked. However, the contents are in good condition, with clean pages (albeit a little age-toned) and the binding is secure.Sold
