Reading Stephen Fliegel's insightful article, 'The Cleveland Table Fountain and Gothic Automata' in the 2002 issue of Cleveland Studies in the History of Art introduced this reader to known evidence of the existence of other fountains in the fourteenth century. What is this evidence? Inventories, especially those famous enough to bear reprinting in not so distant centuries.
What do these two titles have in common? They’re fantastic magazines I wish would come out of hibernation.
