Hoyle, Rafael Larco  
Peru
 Picture
Publisher: Frederick Muller Limited, 1966 London.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall Archaeologia Mundi series. Translated from the French by James Hogarth. "The North American archaeologists accepted the seven epochs into which I had divided the cultural sequence in Peru, sometimes changing the names but retaining the substance of what I had proposed. In this system the cultural development of Peru is classified into seven epochs: the Pre-Ceramic Epoch, the EArly Ceramic Epoch, the Epoch of Development or Formative Epoch, the Florescent Epoch, the Epoch of Fusion, the Imperial Epoch and the Epoch of the Conquest. Each of these epochs is in turn subdivided into three periods so that the whose course of development of the different cultures can be set out in an orderly way. The epochs are of considerable length, and within the confines of each one different civilisations may grow up and decline and die. Within an epoch, too, there may be cultural phases which have not the status of independent civilisations but may serve to link one civilisation with another. Some subdivision is necessary, therefore, for the purposes of the chronological framework adopted in this book.." 91 illustrations in color; 76 illustrations in black and white. Illustrations are on photographic plates. 243 pages. Book is iin VERY GOOD condition. No dust jacket.
