Zender, M., "Dictionaries, Grammars & Literary Sources for the Yucatec Maya Language," p. 1 of 6 The earliest Yucatec Maya dictionaries are: - The Motul (456 Maya-Spanish folios & 236 Spanish-Maya folios), discovered in the late 19th-c. by the Abbé Charles-Étienne Brasseur de Bourbourg. It is now in the John Carter Brown Library of Brown University, and good editions have been published by Acuña (1984, 2001), Arzápalo Marín (1995) and Martínez Hernández (1929). Probably compiled in the late 16th or early 17th century. - The San Francisco (93 Maya-Spanish folios & 101 Spanish-Maya folios) came to light during the closing of the Convent of San Francisco, Mérida, Yucatán, in 1821. Juan Pio Perez copied the manuscript, and his copy survives in a private US collection, though the original is now lost. An excellent facsimile of Perez's copy was published by Michelin (1976). May date to 1700s. - The Bocabulario de Mayathan or the Vienna Dictionary (Spanish-Maya only, 200 large folios) was discovered in the National Library of Vienna, Austria, by Eulalia Guzman in 1937. The original can still be consulted there, but a widely- available 1972 facsimile was published by the Akademische Druck-u Verlagsanstalt, and there are also English (Dorothy Andrews Heath de Zapata, 1980), and Spanish (Rene Acuña, 1993) critical editions. May have been compiled in the late 16th century by fray Francisco de la Torre. Acuña, René (editor) 1984 Calepino Maya de Motul. Edicion de Rene Acuña. Facsimile version by René Acuña.
