Pre-Columbian Art of Mexico and Central America

Edited by George Kubler

With mineralogical attributions by E. W. Faller

This handbook serves as the first comprehensive publication of the Yale University Art Gallery’s distinguished collection of Precolumbian art, which features notable pieces from throughout Mesoamerica and from every period. The nearly 300 object entries are arranged by region and include historical, iconographical, and structural information. A mineralogical study of the collection includes an explanation of the methods used to make the attributions, as well as a description of the minerals themselves. Clearly organized and thoroughly researched, this publication is an essential reference for scholars, students, and collectors of Precolumbian art.
