I am interested in the name of the type(s) of alphabetic scripts used 
by the indigenous in the XVI and XVII centuries. I gather that they are 
usually Humanist hand. 
Is there a good review article on early Spanish (Mexican) colonial 

Does someone have a paleography bibliography from a class? I have 
Barber and Beradan The Emperor's Mirror. 

I am trying to identify a manuscript based mostly on paleography.  Has 
anyone done this before? I am grateful for any practical help the 
listers can give.

Best regards,
