History of Books and Printing

Mesoamerican Manuscripts

Special Collections holds high-quality facsimiles of several dozen Aztec and Mayan manuscript books, ranging from Lord Kingsborough's famous Antiquities of Mexico (1831-48) to more recent reproductions.

Most titles can be located in the library catalog by entering "Manuscripts, Mexican facsimiles," "Maya facsimiles," or "Aztec facsimiles" as a subject term and then limiting your search to "Center for Southwest Research & Special Collecctions."
