This article discusses A. Hiatt Verrill’s work, Old Civilizations of the New World, which reproduces an “inscription found at Sahhuayacu, Peru” that closely approximates “the script of the Anthon Transcript.” The author argues that the Mayan people did not progress from pictographs to a linear script, but possessed a linear, semicursive script from its early history.
