Dust has very minor rubs otherwise book and dust in excellent condition. Mrs. Irwin delves into the nautical backgrounds of ancient maritime nations to determine the how and why of any such voyages. Two of the more fascinating riddles she asks: how did the beards get on to pre-Colombian statues (Indians everywhere are beardless), and where did the Indian legends of the bearded Fair Gods white men) come from? How is it possible that several hundred Roman coins, the latest stamped 350 A.D., could be dug up in Venezuela a few years ago?--her reply: transoceanic contacts.
