Wax Tablets. The use of wax tablets for writing goes back to the middle ages. The early ones were sometimes in book form, the hinges being of leather thong. These were wooden pages, inletted to allow the pouring of wax. These pages of wax-filled wood could be used over & over because the wax could be smoothed over ready for new writing. These beeswax tablets could be of plain beeswax, or they were some times coloured black, green or red.
