Title: The American Association of Architectural Bibliographers, Papers, Volume IX, 1972 (Hard Cover, No DJ) (Published for The American Association of Architectural Bibliographers by The University Press of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia)

Author: Muggenberg, James R.; Edited by William B. O’neal

Description: Section 4: Frank Lloyd Wright in Print, 1959-1970. "Wright, along with Sullivan, Gropius, Le Corbusier, and Mies was a pivotal talent in the development of modern architecture. It has appeared to some that he was passed by and out of touch. I doubt if time will bear this out. Perhaps it will become increasingly clear that Wright’s Usonian philosophy is more lasting, versatile, and viable than anyone had thought." An annotated bibliography of books and catalogs (by author), motion pictures, recordings, manuscript collections, periodicals (by author), and additional obituaries and portraits published between 1959-1970.

Title: Frank Lloyd Wright. A Research Guide to Archival Sources (Hard Cover) (Published by Garland Publishing, Inc., New York & London)

Author: Meehan, Patrick J.

Description: "The primary goal of this book, in the words of its dedicated and indefatigable author Patrick J. Meehan, is to provide an organized working guide to Frank Lloyd Wright archival material in the widest sense of the term. The research guide locates, records and describes original manuscripts, drawings, letters, documents, and, importantly, furniture, building fragments and other artifacts that are in collections accessible to the public. The research guide thus points the way to countless treasures which, through widely dispersed, often acquired accidentally or bequeathed fortuitously, and in some cases saved by chance or luck, can be found in a number of archives, libraries and museums across the country and even in two European collections. The very existence of many of these treasures was until now known only to a very few specialists; there are also some instances of objects or documents whose reputed existence could not be verified. In both respects, in tracking down the heretofore unknown and in setting the record straight on the fictitious, Mr. Meehan has performed a major service..." (Foreword: Adolf K. Placzek) (First Edition)

Title: An Update on Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959), And Some Sources for Review (Soft Cover) (Published by Vance Bibliographies, Monticelio, Illinois)

Author: Bibliographic Research Library

Description: Introduction: Since many consider Frank Lloyd Wright to be the dean of American architects, it stands to reason that his work is discussed most widely in the architectural literature. And so it is. Also there has been extensive bibliographical coverage of his writings and those about him. Consequently the purpose of this brief bibliography is not to duplicate what has already been produced, but to update and list the major bibliographic instruments that will give one access to this vast body of writing... The majority of the material listed below cover books and articles published since 1979 except for the bibliographies. Original list price $2.00. (First Edition)

Size: 8.5 x 11
