The astronomer Antonio León y Gama is sometimes considered the first Mexican archaeologist. His description of the discovery of the "two stones" -- the Coatlicue and Sun Stone (a massive sacrificial stone and calendar) -- emphasized the sophistication and high scientific and artistic achievements of the Aztecs in a way that both responded to and further quickened the stirring of Mexican nationalism in the late 18th century.

This work by León y Gama, published in Mexico City some two years after the discovery of the stones. It includes 3 folded manuscript watercolor drawings of antiquities after illustrations in Clavigero.

3 p.l., 116, [2] p. fold. pl. 19 cm.
