Short Description

Pre-Columbian manuscripts are among the rarest hand-written documents to exist today, and some of the most coveted for their historic as well as artistic value. They offer a glimpse into a world now forever lost, whose civilizations were devastated by disease and who culture was lost in the frenzy of conquest and Christianization. The Codex Zouche-Nutall from the British Museum in London represents a vast and all-encompassing source of history, art and religion from the cultural world of ancient America.

Codex Zouche-Nutall

The Codex Zouche-Nutall from the British Museum in London forms, together with the Codex Vindobonensis (Cod. Vindobon. Mexico. 1, Oesterreichische Nationalbibliothek, Wien) and the Codex Borgia (Cod.Vat.mes.1), a trio of one of the most beautiful old Mexican manuscripts which belongs to the Mayan domain. The Codex Dresdensis (Saechsische Landesbibliothek Dresden, Mscr. Dresd. R 310) is still is not included in this grouping. The opportunity to produce the main Codex for the first time in the form of a true-to-original color reproduction using a photo-mechanical process represents a milestone in the pursuit of a project dating back to 1960 and which represents a door into a vast and all-encompassing source of history, art, and religion from the cultural world of Pre-Columbian America.
