In publishing the present volume, it is our privilege to produce the first book ever written by Englishmen on Yucatan-that Egypt of the New World, where, it is now generally admitted, Central American Civilisation reached its apogee-and to be, for the present at least, the only Englishmen who can claim to have explored the uncivilised north-eastern portions of the Peninsula and the islands of her eastern coast. Mr. A. P. Maudslay, who in 1889 made a lengthy stay at and a detailed survey of Chichen, has done yeoman service to Central American archaeology by his years of patient work (alas! too little appreciated) in Guatemala, in the Usumacinta district and Southern Mexico."
