Description

Of greatest importance in this series are manuscripts and offprints of Knorozov’s publications, including parts of the drafts of the monographs Pis’mennost’ indeitsev maiia (“Writing of Maya Indians”) published in 1963 and Ieroglificheskiie rukopisi maiia (Maya Hieroglyphic Manuscripts) published in 1975. There are also offprints of Knorozov’s articles on Maya and Mesoamerican calendars published in the Sovetskaia Etnografiia journal in 1971-1973. Knorozov’s work on Classic Maya inscriptions in the 1980s is represented by a full set of drafts and notes, which led to a publication of the inscription on the sarcophagus from the Temple of the Inscriptions at Palenque, in 1988. The series also includes some manuscripts related to the “signal systems theory” including transcripts of the colloquium on signaling theory organized by the Research Council of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR in 1961, as well as drafts of an article on children’s art, and drafts of a paper on the origins and evolution of Paleolithic art. In addition, there are several manuscripts of reviews and an offprint of an article on ancient Peru writing systems that Knorozov co-authored with Fedorova.
