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.
Includes both the Codex Cortesianus and the Codex Troano, which form parts of a single codex now at the Museo de América, Madrid. The context of the Madrid Codex appears to be primarily concerned with divination; the divinatory almanacs which it contains cover various subjects including hunting, beekeeping, weaving, rain-making, crops, and diseases. It exhibits much attention to world directions and world colors but lacks the astronomy, multiplication tables, prophecies, and other mathematical reckonings of the Dresden Codex, one of the other three surviving Maya screenfolds.
A quality stock volume of one of the four surviving key Mayan codexes. The Codex of Madrid consists of 112 pages and offers an almanac of information on Mayan society, culture and science. The first 30 pages contain introductory textual material.
