Aus dem Humboldt-Nachlaß: Juan José de Oteyzas Beschreibung der Pyramiden von Teotihuacán


Article in German, Abstracts in English, German and Spanish.The papers of Alexander von Humboldt in Cracow (Poland) contain materials related to Mexico and Cuba, which Humboldt had collected. Among them is a manuscript describing Teotihuacan by Juan José de Oteyza, whom Humboldt had met during his stay at the “Real Seminario de Minería” in Mexico City. Humboldt himself never visited this pyramid precinct. In cases like these he used his extensive information network to complete his own observations in his travel journals. This can be seen in the following comparison of Oteyza’s manuscript with Humboldt’s text which was published later
