      This may have already been posted, but there are a couple of files on the Yahoo group that have images of scribal desks. I've been thinking of making one for my wife who does scibal in Atlantia.

      I've been reading the List out of order but don't recall seeing an answer to
      this. The OP kindly threw a scan of the image up on the web:
      http://picasaweb.google.com/katie.e.clark/StefaneschiVatStPierreC129Fol17?fe
      at=directlink
      She states that it "is in a portrait-miniature of the Cardinal Jacopo
      Caetani Stefaneschi (c.1261-1341) in the Saint George Codex at the Vatican
      archives (C129 folio 17). "

      another responder also mentioned this:
      "A somewhat less elaborate desk, with only some of the features Ehud
      inquired for but including a swivel top, is illustrated in the late 15th-c.
      copy of the Speculum historiale produced for Edward IV: BL, MS Royal 14 E.
