American A ntiquities, with some thoughts and suggestions relative to their significance. It aims at nothing more. No similar work, I believe, has been published in English or in any other language. What is known of American A rchseology is recorded in a great many volumes, English, French, Spanish, and German, each work being confined to some particular department of the subject, or containing only an intelligent travelers brief sketches of what he saw as he went through some of the districts where the old ruins are found. Many of the more important of these works are either in French orS panish, or in great English quartos and folios which are not accessible to general readers, and not one of them attempts to give a comprehensive view of the whole subject. (Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)
