Understood. But for the historical value it is excellent. I should clarify by copy, I have never had the pleasure of reading it in it's entirety. I have a very good friend who this is her study. She lives in Merida and teaches this subject. She has given me copies of sections of this book that pertain to Cozumel and a few other ruins in the Yucatan. It is fascinating. Stephens had a partner , don't know the name. but I understand he was the artist who did most of the drawings. They are amazing. Do you remember anything of some story in his book about something to do with Uxmal being built in a day? I will have to see if she has the entire book. Now I am really interested and would love to read it in its entirety. She can spend hours explaining the ruins of Chichenitza, Uxmal,Coba etc. From the significance to the number of steps, and the Mayan calender, Haab, and on and on. I love this stuff.
