The University Libraries' Mesoamerican codices collection consists of high quality facsimiles held in Special Collections, mass published facsimiles found on our shelves, early microfilm proxies of originals, and scholarly interpretations.
This codex is an important example of how the non-European languages of the New World were "written" in the native pictorial tradition. The written glosses of the Codex Egerton are examples of the recording of Mixtec in European writing. (Introduction by C.A. Burland.)
(Series: Códices Mexicanos 9) The manuscripts reproduced, pictorial throughout, may be viewed as Mixtex pictorial writing; the commentary volume, chiefly in Spanish, includes Mixtec texts in roman alphabet.
