I argue for two levels of signiﬁcation: the explicit representation of the terrestrial map, and the metaphoric evocations of the underlying cartographic structure. While the former conveys the physical scope of an Acolhua territory depicted in terms of purely human experience, the latter attributes to it a cosmic dimension and force. Chapter 3 examines the Codex Xolotl, the Quinatzin Map, and the Tlohtzin Map as genealogies, speciﬁcally, dynastic genealogies. The chapter begins with a discussion of genealogy and genealogies in Mesoamerican art and culture, both before and after the Conquest, and then places the manuscripts within this broader tradition.
As in the case of the Quinatzin, only the Tlohtzin’s obverse is painted. 30 They used very ﬁne brushes that for the most part left no sign of themselves as physical instruments, or of the force and movement of the painter’s hand, only an unbroken, thin line enclosing areas of mostly unmodulated color, all in the traditional, pre-Hispanic manner. Age, wear, and vermin have caused signiﬁcant losses of the lime plaster and the ink and pigments, especially in the areas around folds, as well as darkening and discoloration.
The fourth is of the registers and the royal tributes that the provinces of this New Spain paid. The ﬁfth, a long history, treats of many things. 12 Before 1608 the evidence for the manuscripts’ provenance is, if tenuous, not negligible. 13 The don Diego who signed the 1544 letter may be identiﬁed as don Hernando’s brother don Diego Tecocolchi Teutzquitzin, who succeeded him as cacique in 1565. Who other than the descendants and heirs of Nezahualcoyotl and Nezahualpilli would have had so keen an interest in or could have had possession of indigenous, pictorial histories of pre-Hispanic Acolhuacan, especially histories that emphasize royal genealogy?
