Everyday Life of the Incas - Paperback

1973, ISBN: 9780880293501

Hardcover, ID: 13067433

Cambridge University Press, London: 1967. Softcover. Reading copy. Underlining on some pages. A brief and stimulating outline of the prehistory of the whole world and the development of the human race in each part of the globe, until the stage of detailed records from which history may be written. It follows the vast spread and slow progress of human settlement, the growth of civilization, and the beginnings of technology in the various parts of the earth; a development so uneven that in some countries Professor Clark's story ends thousands of years ago, while in others we still find 'prehistoric' peoples. Includes an Index., Cambridge University Press, London: 1967, New York: Dorset Press, 1973. Hardcover. Very Good/No Jacket. Ann Kendall. Type: Hard Back Second Printing. Hardcover Book in Very Good Condition. 77 Illustrations and photographs by the author. The land of the Inca empire, which extended over the Andean area of South America some 2,200 miles wide, was overthrown by the Spanish adventurer Francisco Pizarro in the 1530s. The Incas had no written histories or accounts of their lives so the conquering Spaniards wrote their own accounts based on their observations and information from descendants from the Incan provinces. So the historical accounts of their lives are subject to this understanding.
