Mexico City: Universidad nacional autónoma, 1939

This Spanish edition of the Popol Vuh, a translation from the French translation of Brasseur de Bourbourg, was published a year before the 1940 rediscovery of the Ximénez alphabetic K’iche’-language manuscript (see Popol Vuh).

When living in Paris in the 1920s, the Guatemalan novelist Asturias attended the Maya lectures of Raynaud at the Sorbonne and became his disciple, contributing to this translation.
