Pre-Columbian Art of South America Book: Mint Copy

About the Piece

This "Pre-Columbian Art of South America" book by Alan Lapiner is in mint condition, and is a "must have" reference book for collectors, museum curators, and art history students of Andean Pre-Columbian art. This crisp, mint first edition is lavishly illustrated with superb examples from all the primary cultures of the entire South American continent. This book is organized first by geographic area, and within that area, the primary cultural groups are classified in chronological order. There is a brief overview of the archaeology of each primary geographical area, and then a discussion of the highlights of the artifacts in that area all by chronological order. Each object is photographed in the book, many in beautiful color, and by professional art photographers including Justin Kerr. In addition, each object is accurately described with its date and dimension. Many of the objects were published for the first time in this book, and many of the objects are from private collections from around the world. It is important to note that this book was published prior to the US and UNESCO patrimony regulations. This book is also utilized by the major auction houses such as Sotheby's, Christies, and Bonhams as a primary reference for objects represented at auction. This book is also the companion book for "Pre-Columbian Art of Mexico and Central America" by Hasso von Winning. The book offered here was published in August 1976 by Harry N. Abrams, Inc., 460 pages with text, 910 illustrations, 225 photos in full color and many are mounted. Hardbound with dust jacket, including the clear protective cover for the dust jacket. ISBN: 0810904217.
