Title: Frank Lloyd Wright, Duell, Sloan and Pearce (Booklet) (Published by Duell, Sloan and Pearce, New York)

Author: Wright, Frank Lloyd

Description: Booklet for three Wright books published by Duell, Sloan and Pearce, Frank Lloyd Wright On Architecture, 1894 - 1940; An Autobiography; In The Nature of Materials, The Buildings of Frank Lloyd Wright, 1887 - 1941. All three to be published in 1941-1942. "In this astonishing era of the salesman when everything, from a sausage to a candidate for President of the United States, merit or no merit, is expanded with glowing emotion, it may be proper, As Duell, Sloan and Pearce suggest, for an author to step forward and tell the gentle reader why he should buy and read what, gone beyond the author’s recall, has been written. Well, Maybe so. But my proper medium is a hod of mortar and some bricks (or boards), the building unions, somebody’s money – all the money somebody ought to get to have a better home or something in a better way. So it seems to me I write only as writing illustrates my buildings..." Of interest is the note for An Autobiography, "Four books in One, 1941," the second in the series of three. Wright’s first autobiography was "three books in one." This Autobiography ended up not as four, but "five books in one, the third in the series, and published not in 1941, but 1943.

Title: Frank Lloyd Wright On Architecture. Selected Writings 1894 and 1940, Edited with an Introduction by Frederick Gutheim. (Hard Cover, Green Cloth Cover) (Published by Duell, Sloan and Pearce, New York)

Author: Wright, Frank Lloyd; Edited Gutheim, Frederick

Description: "When I first considered the collection and arrangement of the selected writings of Frank Lloyd Wright in one volume I was aware of the existence of a great mass of published and unpublished material. As my work progressed I began to realize how much more extensive was this literature than I had originally supposed. While the selections printed here are but a small part of Wright’s literally effort, a work which must be considered of increasing importance, I am confident that they are fully representative of the much larger body of material from which they have been drawn. Each selection has been carefully chosen to preserve the spirit of the original context. For the occasional student whose necessities dictate reference to the original, the reference in the head and the attached bibliography will be helpful..." Frederick Gutheim.

Date: 1942

Title: The Kenyon Review - Winter 1942 (Published by Kenyon College, Gambier, Ohio)

Author: Goodman, Paul; Goodman, Percival

Description: (Book Review) "Frank Lloyd Wright on Architecture." In depth analysis of Wright’s latest book. Discusses "Organic Architecture", "Domestic Architecture", and "Organic Architecture and the International Style". "...Wright does not think as a great entrepreneur; he merely rather hopes that Broadacres is inevitable. (In fact it must be said of him that throughout his long career he has never mixed in the schemes nor compromised with the tastes of his wealthy clients. It is mysterious in these circumstances how he has managed to get along - except that God takes care of his saints.)" Includes 14 photographs and five illustrations. Original cover price 50c.

Title: Kenyon Review, The - Winter 1946 (Published by Kenyon College, Gambier, Ohio)

Author: Bentley, Eric

Description: Book Review: "When Democracy Builds". "Frank Lloyd Wright’s book is important as a symptom of current fallacies or, more precisely, of the classic and time-honored fallacies of philosophic anarchism which are the same yesterday today and forever. His assumption that politics can somehow be by-passed by the builders of the new world is reinforced by what one might call the Professional Illusion - the illusion each profession suffers from, that its methods and matters afford a general panacea..."

Wright had achieved fame beyond any American artist and was as renowned abroad as at home... Though a sharp critic of society and of his contemporaries in the architectural world, Wright won more official honors at home and abroad and erected more structure than any other individual architect of the twentieth century. His permanent impact on the history and development of architecture is conceded even by his sharpest critics. Original list price $8.95. (First Edition) (Sweeney 314)

Title: Portrait of Frank Lloyd Wright for cover of Time Magazine.

Description: Wright is wearing a dark jacket, dark suit and tie. He is facing slightly to the right, but looking toward the upper right corner. There is an illustration of Fallingwater behind him. There is also a small Asian figurine behind him on the left. This might indicate that it was photographed at Taliesin, Spring Green. This photograph was published on the cover of Time Magazine, January 17, 1938, which would indicate that the photograph would have been taken in the later part of 1937, so they would have it in time for the January 1938 issue. This photograph was also used on the cover of the 1977 edition of "An Autobiography," Wright, Horizon Press. Text on face: "Photograph of Frank Lloyd Wright, by Valentino Sarra. From: An Autobiography by Frank Lloyd Wright. Publication date: May 12, 1977. $17.50." Stamped on verso: "Jun 21 1977." Photograph by Valentino Sarra.

Author: Price, Kay

Description: Wright wrote, "I occasionally drove up the river to Portage... to see Zona... While in Japan I read ‘Lulu Bett.’ Straightway I made up my mind to know Zona gale better when I got home... Of course, I hated her environment as utterly unworthy of her (she was an exquisite thing, Wisconsin’s Zona Gale.) 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..."
