“The Codex Quetzalecatzin, also known as the Mapa de Ecatepec-Huitziltepec, the Codex Ehecatepec and Huitziltepec, or the Charles Ratton Codex, is an extremely rare colored Mesoamerican manuscript and one of the most important indigenous manuscripts from the earliest history of the Americas to become available in recent years.” (from the Library of Congress website).

Though still in colonial hands, at least we now have online access to these amazing examples of Aztec cartography from between 1570-1596.
