Catálogo de la colección de objetos de jade

by Lic. Ramón Mena

Facsimile edition of the original 1927 publication. Mena first presents an analysis of what was known about jade as of 1927, as well as of the manufacturing process of the artifacts. He then goes on to describe the jade objects then in the collection of Mexico's Museo Nacional. Some of the descriptions are accompanied by black-and-white photos. At the time of the original publication, some cultures such as the Olmec, had not yet been defined. Thus numerous Olmec objects were identified as Mixtec or Nahua by Mena. In Spanish.
