Codex Nuttall (facsimile)

Cambridge: Peabody Museum of American Archaeology and Ethnology, Harvard University, 1902

Nuttall was the first anthropologist to recognize the historical value of ancient codices. Codex Nuttall, found in England, was prominent among the Mexican codices she discovered. One of the finest examples of native pictography, it is an historical narrative dated I Acatl (1519), the year Cortes landed at Vera Cruz.
