Roll Top desk

I know, not of the correct period.  But, does anyone know of a book that shows good images of originals or possibly plans drawn up from originals?

I can't give you a citation offhand, and I have no idea if they were measured from "originals," but a bunch of the woodworking magazines in the 1980s had plans for roll-top desks. They were very popular for a while there.

There is a popular mechanics magazine in google books that has plans for one. It will take a little while to find it but I recal seeing them there.

Also I'm pretty sure in one of the New Yankee Workshop books there are plans for one.
There are 10 types of people in this world, those that understand binary and those that don't.
