Description

Between 1805 and 1807, retired Spanish army captain Guillermo Dupaix set out on three archaeological expeditions at the behest of King Carlos IV of Spain accompanied by a phalanx of cavalry and the artist Jose Castaneda. They documented the ruins of Palenque, Mitla as well as other structures and these represent some of the earliest published images of Maya architecture.

However, the work of Dupaix and Castaneda seems to have been largely forgotten in the turmoil of the Peninsula War. It was not until years later when the manuscripts and illustrations turned up in France were they later published. In fact, another one of Dupiax's works would not be published until 1969 in Madrid over 250 years after the fact.

Edward King, Viscount Kingsborough also published a translation of the journal in 1831 at the beginning of his Antiquities along with a selection of images, but this work appeared the same year in full. The book also contains a wealth of supplementary and comparative material. The illustrations are especially valuable for their detail as war and successive explorers have burned the jungle surrounding the monuments causing damage to many monuments.

This work is also important as an indispensable supplement to Humboldt's Voyage dans l'Amerique as it contains many interesting discoveries not found in this work.
