The Cantigas de Santa Maria are found in several manuscripts. The To Codex contains roughly the first 100 cantigas; the E Codex contains all of the Cantigas, and the standard numbering scheme is derived from it. If you are looking for the facsimile of a particular cantiga, various authors use varying ways to number the original, so you should consult both Codices.
The cantigas' famous illuminations may be found in the E Codex with every 10th cantiga.
The original manuscripts are in color. Unfortunately, some of these facsimiles are in black and white.
