Orfebreria Prehispanica De Colmbia; Estilo Tolima y Muisca (4 Volume Set)

Madrid; 1954 and 1958: Banco De La Republica. First Editions. Thick Quartos. Item #031448

In 4 volumes (textbooks and plate books). This work is based on the study from the collections of the Bank Gold Museum of the Republic of Bogota. These very well-produced volumes are lavishly illustrated with excellent photographs, many in color, and the accompanying text is clear and precise. Both the author, to whom Colombian archaeology already owes many important contributions, and the Banco de la Republic must be warmly congratulated for having spared no effort in producing these volumes which will be valued by archaeologists and art lovers alike as an essential guide to the earliest pre-Hispanic items and the early infusion of gold into the earliest pieces. The project began in 1954 with two volumes and continued in 1958 with these major works. (1954) Volume I, Texta 367 pages, Laminas, 300 pages of plates; (1958) Volume I, Texta, 385 pages, Volume, II, Laminas. Rarely are all four volumes found together. A very nice set bound in beige cloth lettered and decorated in brown, in very good pictorial dust jackets with a few tape mends to underside.
