  Codex Egerton 2895
(Codex Waecker Götter)


"This edition of the Codex Egerton 2895 is the first to be made of the complete manuscript by color photography. The earlier edition of Antonio Peñafiel (Monumentos del arte mexicano antiguo, Berlin, 1890) was made by colored lithography from drawings of Domingo Carral. That edition, unfortunately, did not transcribe the important glosses on the manuscript. These glosses, in European writing but the Mixtec language, are now available and will constitute an invaluable source for the growing interest in things Mixtec. ..."
