COLLECTING FOR A NEW WORLD: Treasures of the Early Americas
In describing for the first time the journeys of the objects themselves--via African shipwrecks, secret meetings on airstrips, discoveries in castle libraries, and journeys into unknown archaeological sites hidden deep in the jungles of Guatemala--Hessler reveals the role played by private collectors who contribute to the collective understanding of history and culture. Well illustrated in color.
