The Southwestern Journals of Adolph F. Bandelier, 1880-1892

Lange, Charles & Carrol Riley


University of New Mexico Press



4 volumes. (8vo) original cloth, dust jackets. First Editions.

"A day to day notebook, as well as an intimate diary of Bandelier's daily observations and moods, the Journals provide a firsthand account of a pioneering anthropologist's reactions to the southwest. Establishing the foundations on which a new science would someday rise was a task which fell to Bandelier, one of the first systematic anthropologists in America. His most important contribution lies in his attempt to combine several disciplines - history, ethnology, archaeology and the Spanish literature of the conquest - in studies of America's ancient cultures. His application for sound archaeological ruins set him sharply apart from romanticizers of the American Indian." (from dust jacket of first volume).
