El Tesoro de Monte Alban, [vol] III [of] Memorias del Instituto Nacional de Antropologia e Historia

Mexico D.F. Instituto Nacional de Antropologia e Historia, 1969. Hardcover. 406p., profuse b&w site and exhibit photography with some color, many folded plates, many sketches and diagrams, exhaustive study (like being there), glazed alkaline paperstock throughout, a big fat hardbound in 12x8.5 inch white cloth boards gilt and dust jacket. Book itself is very good, even near-fine, slightest edgewear to casing, a sound square copy completely clean and unmarked; while the jacket is very edgeworn with some short tears, its surface abraded, rubbed, has a one-inch sticker scar. Jacket is intact and has protected the book effectively. As stated above, a very good copy, into which is laid in a neat small brochure advertising a Oaxacan jewelry shop selling copies of nine different pendants (?) available in 14 k gold.

The survey focusses on Tomb Vii (Seven), its stone-slab construction similar to European pre-historica.
