  Codex Tro-Cortesianus
(Codex Madrid)


The Codex Troano with 70 pages and the Codex Cortesianus with 42 pages are joined together as the Madrid Codex whose 112 pages make it the largest known book of surviving Maya hieroglyphic literature.

"The book came to light a century ago. By then it was in two widely separated pieces, then thought to be distinct books. As such they were published in very limited editions from 1869 on. For instance, only 85 copies of the photographic edition of the Cortés part of 1883 were published. At last in this edition we have the first screenfold colour reproduction of the whole book."
J. E. S. Thompson, in: "MAN", vol. 3, no. 3, p. 493, London
