Not about the Maya
By Uncle Ross
A useful book of history about the men who discovered and studied the Maya, but very little about the Maya themselves.
Histories of the Mayans
Excellent. Educational and interesting to read observations from the mid-1800's. more information has since been found and more is now known as they have improved the interpretation of the hieroglyphics, but it was interesting to see what they knew at that time.
