Castellanos Magaña, Daniel con The Madrid Codex (The Maya Codices Full Color)
Reseña del editor Full-Color Edition Madrid Codex, also called Codex Tro-Cortesianus, a richly illustrated glyphic text of the pre-Conquest Mayan period and one of few known survivors of the mass book burnings by the Spanish clergy during the 16th century. The variant name Tro- Cortesianus is a result of the early separation of the manuscript into two parts, the first part (pages 22–56 and 78–112) being known as Troano for its first owner, Juan Tro y Ortolano, and the second (pages 1–21 and 57–77) being known as Cortesianus. The codex is held by the Museo de América in Madrid and is considered to be the most important piece in its collection. However, the original is not on display due to its fragility; an accurate reproduction is displayed in its stead.
