    Certainly the most recognizable Pre-Columbian artifact and one of the most famous objects in the world, the Aztec Calendar Stone has fascinated scholars and the public since it was rediscovered in 1790. In this volume, editors Villela (Art History, University of New Mexico) and Miller (Art History, Yale University) provide an overview of the Calendar Stone's history and significance, followed by a selection of 21 key sources (many published in English for the first time), ranging from Antonio de Leon y Gama's 1792 report on the Calendar Stone's discovery to up-to-date scholarship from the first years of this century. Beautifully designed and generously illustrated (including 21 color plates), this scholarly volume will interest historians, archaeologists, and art historians, as well as some general readers.
