Publication: Architecture: Man in Possession of His Earth (Hard Cover - DJ) (Published by Doubleday & Company, Inc., Garden City, New York. Biography by Iovanna Lloyd Wright. Designer and editor Patricia Coyle Nicholson.)

Authors: Wright, Frank Lloyd; Wright, Iovanna Lloyd

Description: Is this Wright’s "last testament to the art he did so much to perfect", a "Memoir from a Master Builder" his "last book"? So claims the Publisher. "In this profusely and handsomely illustrated work Mr. Wright, characteristically original, explains architecture in terms of its basic, common materials. Each new material, as it was discovered or developed, came to be used in a different way... As he introduces the material - stone, brick, wood, glass, steel and concrete - Wright creates a vivid picture of the evolution of these materials, what they made possible for architecture, and the use he made of each." (Publisher’s description from dust jacket.)   Commentary: To answer the initial question, their descriptions are carefully crafted. But this is not the type of book Wright would produce. He didn’t, he had been dead for over three years. The book was designed and edited by Nicholson, so most likely the concept of the publisher and endorsed by Taliesin and Mrs. Wright. "We would like to express especial gratitude... to the many talented people of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and the Taliesin Associated Architects. Their understanding assistance and knowledge have made possible... (Page 6). Original cover price $8.50 (Pre-Christmas), $10 there after. (First Edition) (Sweeney 1496)
