Xilografías de Mallorca

Spanish National pattern re-printed from original woodblocks which are preserved in the monastery at Valdemosa, Mallorca, c.1960. No inscription remains on the Ace of Coins block, but the name and date have been applied later. The attribution to 16th century on the Ace is incorrect; probably they are mid-18th century blocks, although the Casa Guasp printing press was first established in 1579.
