The goal of the Corpus of Maya Hieroglyphic Inscriptions is to document in photographs and detailed line drawings all known Maya inscriptions and their associated figurative art. When complete, the Corpus will have published the inscriptions from over 200 sites and 2,000 monuments. The series has been instrumental in the remarkable success of the ongoing process of deciphering Maya writing, making available hundreds of texts to epigraphers working around the world.
Volume 1 includes a Spanish translation of the Introduction text and six appendices: sources of sculpture and their codes; list of abbreviations and symbols used in the Corpus series; table of tun-endings between 188.8.131.52.0 and 10.9.3.0.0; a complete Calendar Round in tabular form, giving the position of tun-endings between 184.108.40.206.0 and 10.9.3.0.0; a method for the quick computation of Calendar Round position, by John S. Justeson; and Moon Age tables, by Lawrence Roys.
The Corpus will be a lasting contribution to the study of the Maya and will save much of the cultural heritage of Mesoamerica from sure obliteration. We owe a debt of gratitude to the authors.
Ian Graham has done more than any other person to save the fragile written record of the ancient Maya from destruction by looters, harsh weather and acid rain… All Mayanists agree on the importance of Graham’s work.
