Estudios arqueológicos en las antiguas ciudades de México

by William H. Holmes

Spanish translation of two volumes originally published in 1895 and 1897, in which the author, then director of the Department of Anthropology at the Field Columbian Museum in Chicago, describes the ruins of Chichen Itza, Uxmal, Cozumel, Isla Mujeres, Tulum, Palenque, Monte Alban, Mitla, and Teotihuacan. In addition to the richly detailed descriptions, Holmes puts emphasis on the conditions found at Mitla, one of the less-explored sites then. He includes illustrations of the buildings and sites, maps, and photographs of incomparable value, since they show in images the precise conditions of the ruins studied. In Spanish.
