Friar Bernardino Sahagûn was in 1529 one of the first Catholic missionaries to the Aztecs. During his sojourn in Mexico he came to speak Nahuatl (the native language) fluently and to understand the Aztec culture, customs, religion and infrastructure intimately. He compiled the largest and most richly detailed record of the Aztecs and their history before the civilisation was wiped out by the Spanish conquest, and Sahagûn is sometimes considered 'the father of ethnology', as his study was the first to derive from the subjects' own point of view, through using native informants in his research. The work, written in 1540, was originally an illustrated manuscript of twelve books in a combination of Nahuatl and Spanish; this version, in Spanish only, was first published in 1829. Volume 2 examines the government and monarchy, the gold and precious stone industry, sacrificial divination, and Aztec theology and moral philosophy
Florentine codex : General history of the things of New Spain by Bernardino( Book )

122 editions published between 1950 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... Sahagún's monumental and encyclopedic study of native life in Mexico at the time of the Spanish Conquest. This immense undertaking is the first complete translation into any language of Sahagún's Nahuatl text, and represents one of the most distinguished contributions in the fields of anthropology, ethnography, and linguistics. Written between 1540 and 1585, the Florentine Codex (so named because the manuscript has been part of the Laurentian Library's collections since at least 1791) is the most authoritative statement we have of the Aztecs' lifeways and traditions ... The Florentine Codex is divided by subject area into twelve books and includes over 2,000 illustrations drawn by Nahua artists in the sixteenth century."--Publisher's website

En la obra del padre Sahagún pueden satisfacerse todas las curiosidades; aquellas que van en busca de lo que aún tiene vigencia para lo nuestro, como para las que apetecen ampliar los horizontes de la patria. Y si es permisible que muchas de las naciones que componen el mundo presente con orgullo su libro, bien puede México con toda legitimidad presentar el suyo por excelencia: el que escribió en el siglo XVI un fraile franciscano para regalo de la cultura universal.--
