Some additional info from the BACK COVER:

With spectacular images and lively language, ,AZTEC: The World of Moctezuma' takes you on a visual tour through the great Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan at the moment just before the Spanish arrived in 1519.

Beginning with an introduction to the Aztec world, the book guides the reader from the agricultural chinampas at the edge of the city, through urban workshops and activities of everyday life, to the great bustling market of Tlatelolco with its vast array of items from throughout the Aztec empire. Following sections introduce the daily life of the noble class of society, examine Aztec religion, and explore the physical and spiritual heart of the city-the Templo Mayor. The journey ends with the dramatic encounter between the Aztecs and the Spanish conquistidores.

The text weaves together the artifacts and images of Aztec life with songs, poems, and quotes from first-hand Aztec and Spanish records.
