  • 'Maya Glyphs' is an astounding introduction to the incredible writing systen devised by the Mayans. Anyone with the slightest interest in Mayan culture should own a copy.

  • Exactly as described!

  • Linda Schele has done her homework. The book opens with a chatty, useful look at the state of Mayan verb decipherment. She was the first to 'prove' certain glyphs were verbs in the Mayan painted books based on the pictures under each glyph block. It really makes sense. Then some debate on the nature of the written language that I think might be a bit out of date now.
    The point of it all is that she has gone through every stone monument and compiled all the glyphs that should be verbs. The bulk of the book goes like this: line drawing of 'verb' glyph, numbers of any attached glyphs (you'll need the Thompson glyph catalog to decipher) then who is doing the verb action, the object, and terse commentary. Where there is speculation on meaning she tells you - secession, birth, death, building dedication. Where meanings are listed they seem correct but many more are known now - she errs on the side of caution.
    I haven't found any phonetic guesses yet or relation to modern dialects, bit of a shame. This is more a book to complete your Maya library than to start you off. With some of the texts used, it should be quite useful.
    Beautiful and bewildering.
