    Default Impresiones tabelarias

    I have found that 'Tabellary' means 'relating to secret balloting by tablets, among the ancient Romans', but I am not referring to this meaning of the adjective.

    I am talking about a kind of wood engraving and I want to find sth appropriate for that.

    The original sentence says:

    Las mejores fueron las conocidas como impresiones tabelarias o incunables xilográficos

    and my attempt:

    The best ones were known as wooden tablets impressions or xilographic incunabula

    ¿Estamos hablando de la madera o el papel estampado por la madera?


    The best ones were known as woodcuts or pre-sixteenth century wood engravings.

    La madera se utiliza en vez del metal a modo de plancha. Eran unos tacos de madera tallados que en principio se utilizaban para la estampación de telas y posteriormente, con la mejora de la calidad del papel, se utilizó éste como soporte. Y esto es lo que vino a llamarse xilografía.

    Usualmente, “woodcut” refiere al papel, pero puede referir a ambos.
