Realm of the Incas, Revised Edition, von Hagen, Victor Wolfgang
10 von Hagen, Victor Wolfgang Realm of the Incas, Revised Edition
U.S.A. Mentor: Ancient Civilizations, Published by THE NEW AMERICAN LIBRARY 1963 Seventh Printing, July 1963 Softcover Very Good No Dust Jacket 4.25 Beltra'n, Alberto 
4.25" x 7". Book in very good condition. Clean text, 223 pages, slightly aged. Small corner bent on back cover. History of the Inca Empire by a racist, bigoted, ill-informed creep. The historical data is interesting and most likely accurate. But the opinions and value judgements begin to be annoying. von Hagen claims, for example, that llamas are "oily", which is completely untrue. There is not one drop of oil on the wool of either of our llamas. Their skin tends to be dry. That is why llama wool does not smell bad when it gets wet. And von Hagen's opinions and value judgements about the lifestyles of the ancient peoples and comparisons to modern reprobative types is almost offensive. The historical data has some value. It is well researched, and the bibliography and references are invaluable for the researcher. Our book number 29067.
