The Manual de Monumentos de Copán is not The Copán Notes, by Linda Schele and supported by the University of Texas at Austin, as stated in Amazon's description. In fact, it is a bi-lingual (English and Spanish) analysis of the carved stone monuments of Copán's Great Plaza. Each monument is analyzed for its pictorial (iconographic) and hieroglyphic contents, including a glyph-by-glyph decipherment in Ch'ol Mayan, English and Spanish. The manual begins with a brief discussion of the nature of Maya hieroglyphic writing, and is followed by an overview of the broader narratives of these monuments as a corpus of regal art and social history. The Manual de Monumentos is a Honduran project created by the Asociación Copán in conjunction with the Instituto Hondureño de Antropología e Historia, Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
