The Codex Borgia, is a member of, and gives its name to, the Borgia Groups of manuscripts.  It is considered to be among the most important sources for the study of Central Mexican gods, ritual, divination, calendar, religion and iconography.  It is one of only a handful of pre-Columbian Mexican codices that were not destroyed during the conquest in the 16th century; it was perhaps written near Cholula, Tlaxcala, Huejotzingo or the Mixtec region of Puebla.  Its ethnic affiliation is unclear, and could either have been produced by Nahuatl-speaking Tlaxcaltec people, Cholulteca people, or by the Mixtec.  Wikipedia  

The Codex Borgia is enclosed in a special wooden cover held together by leather ties and is accompanied by  a 536-page guide to the codex itself.  $3,340.00 including shipping within the United States.
