Pecos, New Mexico: Archaeological Notes


1 in stock


Author: Kidder, Alfred Vincent (1885-1963)

Publisher: Peabody Foundation for Phillips Academy

Pub Date: 1958

Binding: Hardcover

Condition: Fair to Good.  Binding tight.  No tears, bends or folds.  Two previous owners–one owner’s name in ink on ffep, another owner’s bookplate on inside cover.  Some staining to rear end pages and to stiff board title page (see photo).  Without dust jacket.  This volume appears to be a rebinding of the paperback edition, but it is done extremely well, and matches other Kidder Pecos volumes in style.  NO ex-library markings of any kind.

Notes: Kidder’s An Introduction to the Study of Southwestern Archaeology (see   ) is a much more complete examination of his work at Pecos, but this volume could be considered a “follow-up”–his notes on an earlier Pecos site, a description of the pueblo itself (abandoned in 1838), long discussions of kivas (including comparisons and contrasts of ancient and modern)  and burials.
