Incidents of Travel In Yucatan. By John L. Stephens, author of "Incidents of Travel in Egypt, Arabia Petra, and the Holy Land," "Incidents of Travel in Central America, Chiapas, and Yucatan," etc. Illustrated by 120 Engravings. Two vols., 8vo. New York: Harper & Brothers. 1843. We are indebted to the publishers at New York for a copy of this work. Its form is much like that of the ''Incidents of Travel in Central America." The author, with Mr. Catherwood, proceeded to his second examination of the ruina of Yucatan well prepared lo explore, examine, and prepare full and accurate reports of American antiquities. In accordance with this preparation, Mr. Stephens visited forty-four ruined cities; some of them were almost unknown to the citizens of the capital, and had probably never been visited by the white inhabitants. The engravings in these volumes are the finest of their kind. They are from Daguerreotype views, and of course are accurate, and must render all the aid that could possibly be derived from pictorial representations of the objects described. They add inconceivably to the interest, as well as to the value of the work. Probably no traveler of modern times excels Mr. Stephens in accuracy of observation, or in the felicity of his descriptions. His journals have all the interest of the most exciting novels. He can clothe the most common incidents of a journey in a garb which renders them romantically, humorously, or instructively entertaining. Those who have read his former ''Incidents of Travel," in the east and in the west, will need no recommendation of this new work.
