      There were two waxed tablets on display at the Danish National Museum: one
      complete and fragments of the second.

      The first (complete) one is a record of the land taxes for one of the five
      quarters of city of Danzig, listed street by street. It dates from 1406-1440.

      The second (fragments) is a merchants account book found in Copenhagen.. It
      dates from 1350-1400.

      In both cases the wax layer was only about a sixteenth inch thick.

      The "Danzig tablet" photo will be uploaded to folder "Danish National
      Museum" in the photos section.
