Mexican Codices are an ancient reading and writing system, part of this cultural legacy date from the 16th and 17th century. For preservation reasons, the collection known as “Collection of Original Mexican Codices” under the custody of the National Library of Anthropology and History in Mexico City is kept under limited access and controlled illumination conditions. It is presented an accurate color reproduction of Codices under simulated average daylight based on spectral reflectance estimation from statistical spectral data using the Wiener estimator, removing the original capture environment illumination. We compare the achieved results between both, a 16 bands multispectral camera and a RGB Nikon D1 camera.
