The nucleus of the collection of the ARchaeological Section was formed by the sculptures and coins made over by the Boona Branch of Archaeological Survey and sculptures loaned by the Bombay Branch of the Royyal Asiatic Scoity...The Art Section owes its existence to the munificence of the House of the Tataas.

9 Marcus, Joyce. Mesoamerican Writing Systems: Propaganda, Myth, and History in Four Ancient Civilizations.
Princeton, New Jersey: Princeton University Press, (1992). First Edition. 
Large, square octavo, hardcover (green cloth & cream boards), gilt letters, xxii + 495 pp. Fine, in a Very Good, mylar protected dust jacket with light edgewear. From dust jacket: This is an anthropoligcal study of the role of hieroglyphic writing in the prehispanic Aztec, Mixtec, Zapotec, and Maya states. First, Joyce Marcus compares the four systems with regard to eight major themes: calendrics, the naming of nobles, the naming of places, royal marriages, accession to the throne, divine ancestors, warfare, and the rewriting of history. Then she establishes a new theoretical framework within which to conduct further analysis. Her basic contention is that ancient Mesoamerican writing was a tool used by an elite minority in their competetion for positions of leadership, prestige, territory, tribute, and advantageous marriages. She convincingly demonstrate that while it may have been based on actual persons and events, this body of prehistoric writing is a deliberately created tangle of what we would call propaganda, myth, and fact, written for political purposes, and not (as many contemporary scholars have come to believe) reliable history in a modern sense.
