Lybro corriente de los casm[ientos] que se hazen en esta auxiliar de la Parrochia de S.ta Cruz Acatlan de la Ciudad de Mexico, nombrada San Juan Ebangelista Nestipac, defde oy 17 de Maio de 1770
This volume is a truly remarkable finding: the binding is colonial artisanal production, preserved in its absolutely original condition; the title is naively illustrated with natural history scenes (different types of birds, fishes, and a rabbit), and is done with a very accomplished calligraphy. It records the marriages happened during the last years of the 18th century and beginnings of the 19th, from the towns of Asumpcion Aculco y Sa Maria Magdalena Atlosolpan, the church of Santa Cruz de Acatlan (Naucalpan), including the temples in Indian districts of San Juan Bautista (San Juan o San Juanico Nextipac), Nuestra Señora de la Asunción (Aculco, Iztapalapa) and Santa Maria Magdalena Atlasolpa (Magdalena Atlasolpa, Iztapalapa). The ledger is mostly about the marriages occurred in Iztapalapa and Naucalpan. The Nahuatl town of Naucalpan was an Aztec founded village in the outside northwest of Tenochtitlan. During the Spanish colony, Naucalpan was one of the most important evangelization sites. Now is a city and municipality located northwest of Mexico City in the adjoining State of Mexico. The Indian town of Iztapalapa was a Pre-Hispanic village in the shores of the Texcoco Lake nearby Mexico City that would become a "corregimiento" (colonial country subdivisions for administrative purposes) headed by Mexicaltzingo and later an Alcaldia Mayor.
