Realms of Gold a Journey in Search of the Myceneans, Cottrell, Leonard
1 Cottrell, Leonard Realms of Gold a Journey in Search of the Myceneans
New York Graphic Society 1963 First Edition; Various Hardcover Very Good in Near Fine dust jacket 
First edition stated. Book and dust in very good condition. "A hidden or secret thing . . . that was how the Mycenaean civilization appeared to me long before I wrote a book about it eleven years ago; and so, I must admit, it still appears today, despite the vistas opened by archaeological and linguistic research over the past two decades. Why, then, add yet another book to the many which have been and are being published? The only justification I can offer is the attraction of something which is neither completely known nor completely unknown, like a great mountain under drifting cloud which reveals now a valley and then a peak, but never the whole." Questia ; Photographs; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 278 pages

Conquistadors Without Swords, Achaeologists in the Americas, Deuel, Leo
2 Deuel, Leo Conquistadors Without Swords, Achaeologists in the Americas
St. Martin's, 1967 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Book and dust in very good condition. "This is a collection of firsthand records by forty-two New World archeologists and each selection is preceded by an interpretation as long, at least, as the selection itself. Collectively the introductions and narratives form a cohesive study of American archaeology, an archaeology distinct from that of the Old World with its own heroes and its own specific problems. ""Side by side with the digger of trenches and 'plunderer' of graves there loom the airborne surveyor; the aqua-lunged diver; the meticulous analyst of the physical evidence from bones, plants and ceramics, as well as the anthropological field worker and the desk bound scholar who draws novel conclusions from motley data." Kirkus Review. ; Photographs, illustrations; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 647 pages

Mayan Enigma  The Search for a Lost Civilization., Ivanoff, Pierre,
5 Ivanoff, Pierre, Mayan Enigma The Search for a Lost Civilization.
Delacorte Press 1971 0440055288 / 9780440055280 First American Edition; Various Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Book and dust in very good condition. Translated from the French by Elaine P. Halperin. First American Edition. ""This careful journal records the French archaeologist's ten year inquiry into a twofold puzzle. Why did the classical Mayans build their incredible cities in the most inaccessible and almost unlivable areas in Central America? And why did they completely abandon them to disappear as the western hemisphere's most vital early culture? Ivanoff's search for clues led to the discovery of a lost city in the jungles of Peten and to years of living with a primitive tribe called the Lacandons who most closely resemble, both physically and culturally, the ancient Mayans.
