Historia Tolteca-Chichimeca

The Historia Tolteca-Chichimeca was created at a pivotal transitional moment, bridging the era between pictorial manuscripts and alphabetic texts. It was written between 1545 and 1565 in Nahuatl on European paper. The narrative focuses on pre-Hispanic events but also extends into the post-Conquest time period.
