TYPE: Manuscript
DIMENSIONS: 42 cm or 16.5 inches tall
COMPONENTS: Approx. 600 pages; black and red ink; sometimes gilded ink; decorated with colorful abstract drawings.
CONDITION: Cover very damaged. Damage and loss in the upper margin.
priceInfo: Though somewhat damaged, such Mexican choirbook manuscripts (which were actually made in Colonial Mexico) are very rare. I have just had my expert in Philadelphia confirm that the two manuscripts below were indeed made in Mexico three hundred years ago (which makes them very rare-much rarer than similar manuscripts made in Europe and then brought to Colonial Latin America).
