This groundbreaking edition of the Codex Chimalpahin, edited and translated by Arthur J. O. Anderson and Susan Schroeder, makes available in English for the first time the transcription and translation of the most comprehensive history of native Mexico by a known Indian.

The Codex Chimalpahin, which consists of more than one thousand pages of Nahuatl and Spanish texts, is a life history of the only Nahua about whom we have much knowledge.

Volume 1 of the Codex Chimalpahin represents heretofore-unknown manuscripts by Chimalpahin. Predominantly annals and dynastic records, it furnishes detailed histories of the formation and development of Nahua societies and polities in central Mexico over an extended period.
