Title: The Book of a Hundred Houses. A collection of Pictures, Plans and Suggestions for Householders (Hard Cover) (Published by Herbert S. Stone & Company, Eldridge Court, Chicago. Herbert S. Stone also published House Beautiful. Top edge trimmed and gilt, others uncut.)

Author: Editor: Dow, Joy Wheeler; Chapter written by: Granger, Alfred H.

Description: The article "An Architects Studio " by Alfred H. Granger was first published in the December 1899 issue of House Beautiful. It is reprinted in this volume. "An Architects Studio. When one attempts to describe almost any modern building, the first question to be asked is, ‘What style?’ ...One of the most radical of these opponents is Mr. Frank L. Wright, whose house and studio I have the privilege of describing... One’s first impression of the dining-room is its simplicity – no rugs, no curtains, and only the necessary furniture, which, however, is in perfect harmony with the room. One entire end of the room opposite the fireplace is practically of glass, laid in leading of a very delicate design, which was evidently inspired by the lotus flower. The harmony of color between the brown and the red is perfect, and is accentuated (if one can accentuate a harmony) by the color of the walls and ceiling, which are covered with arras of a soft brown, and which give to the entire room a golden tone such as one sees in a rich sunset. In the center of the ceiling is a design of exquisite tracery, through which at night a soft light filters, and gives to the whole room a warm, rich glow. Includes 5 photographs. Note: Listed in Sweeney, but not seen by the author. (First Edition) (Sweeney 35B)

Description: Section IV: New Directions in Design. I: "The New Design and Public Acceptance." Includes references to Wright. "...The most important contribution our design world has made (expressed in architecture and writing on it) is that of Frank Lloyd Wright; an organic concept based as much on inspiration as on experience. He emphasizes function and material as did the Bauhaus and adds, as their equivalents, the user and the environment. It would be hard to overestimate the fundamental changes which the inclusion of these two basic factors indicates..."
Section IV: II: "Excerpt From London Lectures." In May, 1939, Frank Lloyd Wright lectured at the Royal Institute of British Architects during his visit to England, as holder of the Sir George Watson chair of the Sulgrave Manor Board. These were published in "An Organic Architecture: The Architecture of Democracy," Wright, 1939. "In the meantime, what great creative work have we to show as an actual working basis for the life which we have led or as proof of its validity? Not much. No, it was truly an escapist life we have led. We will find there in that life just application of the word ‘escapist’ if the word has any meaning at all...
Section IV: III: "Taliesin West is the Arizona home of Mr. And Mrs. Frank Lloyd Wright and the Taliesin Fellowship. The base is large blocks of stone dumped, with cement, into forms. On this is erected a framework of rough stained red wood which supports roof and sides of double canvas flaps. It is one of the clearest of Mr. Wright’s poetic accomplishments." Includes five photographs of Taliesin West.

I hadn’t met Olgivanna and I thought Taliesin would be a much more appropriate place for the author of ‘Lulu Bett.’ ...But she was always glad to see us, asking me to come, although she said she valued her Regency at the University of Wisconsin too much ever to be seen with me in public..."

Author: Danz, Louis

Description: "This is one of the most revolutionary books on aesthetics to appear in a hundred years, a book of sharp and deep observations to rebuke the pallid ‘art criticism’ of our day. It is certain to create a storm..." (dust jacket). "We seek such a man. We seek the architect who gives us everything the machine age can and besides gives us the richness life has to offer. We seek a man who is sunlight and climate, landscape and soil, color and texture, a man who lives his architecture, a man who abhors the false, who will not accept decadence, imitation or duplication... Who is he? We might call him Emerson or Longfellow, Stephan foster or Thoreau. And certainly there is in him much of Walt Whitman... for he is aesthetically an architectural summation of our entire era. This man is Frank Lloyd Wright, an architect who can sing and curse, love and despise, who is both tender and brutal, capable of fiery passion and withering disdain." Original list price $5.00.

Title: Homes of the Brave (Hard Cover DJ) (Published by Alfred A. Knopf, Inc., New York)

Author: Robsjohn-Gibbings, T.H.

Description: Chapter 2: "Organic Architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright. ...It is incorrect to assume - as some of Wright’s disciples do - that the American art of living began with Wright... Of all who contribute to the new house during the nineteenth century, three men were outstanding. They were Horatio Greenough, Louis Sullivan, and Frank Lloyd Wright... To people living in an age of abundance, Wright’s conception seemed at first to offer less... People, land, and building, separated for centuries by an architecture totally preoccupied with academic style, were reunited once again." Wright mentioned throughout the rest of the book. Author of "Good-bye, Mr. Chippendale", 1944. "This very funny book is fundamentally a serious criticism of American (and imported) interior decoration and exterior architecture for the past sixty years." (Dust jacket.) Includes two illustrations, the first is of the Thomas Gale house (1904 - S.098). Drawings by Mary Petty. Original list price $3.50. (First Edition)

"Young Frank Lloyd Wright. Wright is credited, even by his enemies, with being the greatest architect of the twentieth century. He is the greatest artist to emerge from the Middle West, the only one who may be said to have conquered Chicago. One reason for his success is that he had always known what he wanted. ‘You’ve got to have guts to be an architect!’ he has said. ‘People will come to you and tell you what they want, and you will have to give them what they need...’ " 17 illustrations and photographs by Wayne Andrews include: Coonley (2); Bradley (1); Lloyd Lewis (1); Taliesin (1); Fallingwater (2); Johnson Wax Co. (2); V. C. Morris (2); Florida Southern College (1); Unitarian Meeting House (2); Taliesin West (3). (Fifth Edition)
