From the book cover: "For hundreds of years, maya artists and scholars used hieroglpyhs to record their history and culture. In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, archaeologists, photographers, and artists recorded the Maya carvings, often by transporting box cameras and plaster casts through the jungle on muleback. <em>The New Catalog of Maya Hieroglyphs</em> is a guide to all known hieroglyphic symbols of Classic Maya script, presenting the findings of the most reliable scholars in Maya epigraphy. This volume focuses on texs from the Classic Period (150-900 CE) found on carved stone monuments, stucco wall panels, wooden lintels, carved and painted pottery, murals, and small objects of jadeite, shell, bone, and wood. An essential resource for students of Maya texts, it is also accessible to nonspecialists with an interest in Mesoamerica."
