Title: Frank Lloyd Wright. Collection «Les Maitres de L'architecture Contemporaine», Publiée Sous La Direction de Christian Zervos, Editions «Cahiers d'Art», 40, Rue Bonapart, Paris (V1o) (Collection "The Masters of the Contemporary Architecture", Volume 1) (Soft Cover) (Published under the Direction of Christian Zervos, Cahiers d'Art, Paris)

Author: Hitchcock, Henry Russel

Description: The first volume in the series on the masters of modern architecture. It includes an introduction by Hitchcock, photographs and a few floor plans of Wright’s work completed between 1902 and 1923. Although the biography is only four pages, he provoked a response from Wright when he refereed to him as an old master, tied to the ornamentation of Sullivan, and Wright’s concern for the picturesque. Hitchcock concluded, "He remains, it is time to say without reservation, the greatest architect and perhaps the greatest American of the early twentieth century." Two years later Wright would respond, "And I warn Henry right here and now, that having a good start, not only do I fully intend to be the greatest architect who has yet lived – but the greatest Architect who will ever live –." Forty-eight photographic and floor-plan plates include; Dana (2); Willets; Heurtley; Larkin; Frank Thomas (2); Unity Temple (2); Barton; Ross; Evans (2); Heath; Roberts; Robie; Steffens; Taliesin (5); Coonley (6); Bach; Midway Gardens (4); Imperial Hotel (5); Barnsdall (7); Millard (2). This book is the first of the Collection "The Masters of the Contemporary Architecture". Choice of documents by the architect Andre Lurcat. Original list price 30 francs (Approx $1.20) (First Edition) Two copies. (Sweeney 201)

Author: Heinz, Thomas A.

Description: Heinz introduces aspects that have previously gone unnoticed. Concentrating primarily on residences, He examines construction techniques that are just as unorthodox as the architect himself, indicating that Wright's approach to detailing was pragmatic rather than conventional and was based on traditional common sense. Previously unpublished sketches on tracing paper provide a rare insight into Wright's design progression. (Publishers description.) Original HC List Price $55.00, SC List Price $45.00.

Title: Frank Lloyd Wright. Maitre de l’architecture americaine (Hard Cover DJ) (Published by Abbeville Press, New York, London, Paris)

Author: Smith, Kathryn

Description: A French edition, and exact version of the English edition published in 1998. "Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is unquestionably America's most celebrated architect. Even today, almost forty years after his death, he continues to tower over the architectural landscape. In fact, his career was so long and his accomplishments so varied it can be difficult still to grasp the full range of Wrights achievement. In this refreshing new study, Wright scholar Kathryn Smith does just that, exploring the grace and beauty found in all facets of Wright's work: from office desks and chairs to his first residential commissions, from magazine cover designs to major public buildings. The concise text and brilliant color photographs chart Wright's entire career, beginning with his apprenticeship to Adler and Sullivan before the turn of the century. Readers witness the Prairie period, Wright's years in Japan and California, his major designs of the late 1920s and 1930s, his Usonian houses, and the monumental late works of his last decades..."

Title: Frank Lloyd Wright: The Interactive Portfolio  (Hard Cover - Boxed)  (Published by Running Press, Philadelphia, London)

Author: Stipe, Margo

Description: "Fortunately for the many admirers of his architecture, theories, and designs, Frank Lloyd Wright was not only a lover of space and a man of vision - he was also a man who liked to save things. Since he opened his first office in Chicago in 1893, Wright held on to drawings, sketches, notes, photographs, manuscripts, and correspondence. Many of those artifacts survive today in his official archive at Taliesin West in Arizona. Produced in conjunction with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, this extraordinary book offers a fresh presentation of the documents of one of the world’s most famous architects. It is, in effect, a museum in a book. The unique book "experience" contains 25 interactive, three-dimensional features, removable facsimiles of original documents, never-before-published architectural sketches, and an audio CD containing excerpts from Wright’s weekly addresses at his architectural compound, as well as television interviews. Following the proven success of other Wright titles, this is an engaging journey into the life and work of the iconic American architect through words, pictures, and artifacts."

Title: Frank Lloyd Wright Prairie Houses  (Hard Cover)  (Published by Rizzoli International Publications, Inc., New York)

Author: Hess, Alan; Contributions by Smith, Kathryn; Photographs by Alan Weintraub.

Description: With the advent of Prairie style architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright embarked on a journey that would forever change the course of architecture. During this extraordinarily prolific period, roughly the first quarter of the twentieth century, Wright built the first great modern American houses. He cast aside many of the conventions of the past, opening up interior spaces so that there might be a more subtle flow of rooms. The plans for Prairie style architecture were based on a tartan plaid of main spaces and secondary spaces, of public rooms and circulation spaces. Their decentralized asymmetry did not follow the Beaux Arts insistence on a primary, often dominating, focal point — a vestige of its roots as a symbolic architecture for divine-right royalty. Focusing on interiors and details, the book features more than 70 Prairie style houses and other buildings. (Publisher’s description.) Original cover price $50.00. Three copies. (First Edition)

Description: The mid-twentieth century was one of the most productive and inventive periods in Wright's career, producing such masterworks as the Guggenheim Museum, Price Tower, Fallingwater, the Usonian houses, and the Loveness House, as well as a vast array of innovative furniture and object design. With a variety of shapes and forms-ranging from honeycombs to spirals-this period is an important contribution to mid-century modernism. Mentoring such talents as Richard Neutra and Rudolph Schindler among others, Wright was one of the most influential proponents of the simplicity, democratic designs, and organic forms that characterize Mid-Century Modern.

Title: Frank Lloyd Wright Natural Design, Organic Architecture (Hard Cover) (Published by Rizzoli International Publications, Inc. New York)

Author: Hess, Alan; Photography Weintraub, Alan

Description: An unsung prophet of today’s green movement in architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright was an innovator of eco-sensitive design generations ahead of his time. An architect and designer of far-reaching vision, it is not surprising that Frank Lloyd Wright anticipated many of the hallmarks of today’s green movement. Across his work—which stands upon a philosophy Wright termed "organic"—widespread evidence is seen of a refined sensitivity to environment, to social
organization as impacted by buildings, and to sustainable and sensible use of space. The desire to work and live with nature to create livable homes and cities is an ongoing theme of American architecture and planning. This book explores Wright’s lessons on how climate, sustainability, sunlight, modern technology, local materials, and passive environmental controls can become the inspiration for excellent design, and highlights a selection of Wright’s buildings to show how he dealt with these issues. The book is organized by the green concepts Wright used—including passive solar design and the use of thermal massing, passive berm insulation, environmentally sensitive landscaping, passive ventilation systems, passive natural light, and intelligent and artful adaptation of technology—with examples from different houses. It shows how Wright evolved certain ideas that continue to spur discussions of green architecture design today. (Publishers description.) Original list price $55.00. (First Edition)

Author: Pfeiffer, Bruce Brooks; Editor: Gossel, Peter

Description: Volume 1 covers the early Chicago years and the Prairie Houses, the period which provoked a profound influence on European architects. Wright's architectural work during these early years was mostly residential, as it would be throughout his career, and from his earliest work, Frank Lloyd Wright demonstrated a knowledge of and respect for natural materials. In the ten years between 1896 and 1906 he developed and perfected the so-called "prairie house." Wright believed the architect should have complete charge of architectural design, and for him this meant interior furnishings as well as exterior landscape. The 1908 Avery Coonley residence, the administration building for the Larkin Soap Company (1903–1905), and the Unity Temple (1905) are examples of major works from the period.

Author: Pfeiffer, Bruce Brooks; Editor: Gossel, Peter

Description: This second volume deals with the work after World War I, beginning with the Imperial Hotel, covering Wright’s quest to design affordable houses to Fallingwater being the dramatic climax. From 1917 through the Depression, up until 1942, he designed continually. Wright saw many projects go unrealized, but built on new concepts. His block building system led to the famous Ennis house in Los Angeles. In 1936 he completed the Herbert Jacobs house, using his new "Usonian" techniques. He moved to Arizona at the age of 71 and started building Taliesin West. The Johnson Administration Building opened to great fanfare, nationwide publicity, and lines around the block waiting to tour inside. Despite adversity, Wright emerged from this era with reputation restored and vitality renewed, as manifested in Fallingwater and the Johnson building, while his Usonian homes began to alter the way Americans lived.

Author: Pfeiffer, Bruce Brooks

Description: Frank Lloyd Wright’s wife, Olgivanna, is famously quoted as saying that "My husband seemed to thrive on hardships." From the years 1920 to 1932 Wright’s fortunes were at a low ebb; he was plagued by financial, personal, and professional setbacks, but saw the time as one of challenges instead of one of defeat. Unable to find patrons, his imagination led to visionary, often splendid, architectural conceptions that laid the groundwork for the revolutionary architecture he would build in the decades to follow. During this period he designed almost fifty projects, of which only a few were realized, but those few are seen today as among his most important creations. Rare and unseen photos as well as little-known drawings from this period are on lavish display in this important work on the master architect. (Publisher’s description.) Original list price $60.00.

Title: Frank Lloyd Wright: 50 Key Buildings By America’s Greatest Architect (Hard Cover DJ) (Published by Quercus Publishing Plc., London. First published in 2009. This new edition published in 2010.)

Author: Wilkinson, Philip

Description: Frank Lloyd Wright has a strong claim to be North America's greatest architect. By the time he died, American architecture had been transformed and a new, distinctive kind of building had evolved that reflected the needs of people living in the cities and in The open spaces of the US. Frank Lloyd Wright was one of the most important creators of this new architecture, as well as the designer of some of America's most beautiful and memorable buildings. Wright's undoubted genius lay in his ability to think an idea through from basic principles. His concept of organic architecture started with the essential requirements of the building and the nature of the site. He thought outwards from these key tenets so that each building's facade and interiors, and even the furnishings, derived from them. This innovative approach inspired a new, uniquely American kind of architecture and left a legacy that is one of the greatest of any architect. Wright designed over 500 buildings of which some 400 still survive... (Dust Jacket) Original list price £40.00 (Approximately $60.00 US) 12 x 14.5 (First Edition)

Description: Wright Panorama amplifies the artistry of Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture with expanse. In the more than 140 Tom Schiff panoramic photographs, Schiff reveals nearly eighty extant buildings in Wright's oeuvre from a unique perspective. Wright Panorama exhibits the great architect's prolific, varied, and iconic body of work, pulling from it a new shape and offering it renewed appeal. Eric Lloyd Wright's compelling foreword to Wright Panorama introduces Tom Schiff and four noteworthy Wright scholars. Since Wright's architecture embraced his strong belief in and respect for Nature, these scholars draw from this and contribute essays from a new nature-centric perspective. (Publisher’s description.)
