Description: A broadside for "Walter Burley Griffin" by James Birrell, published by University of Queensland Press, $11.75. "With a foreword by Robin Boyd and 113 illustrations.

He has, after all, been forgotten by most of the world, and, even in his native country, the United States, his fame is only a faint memory. And yet, as Robin Boyd points out in his delightful Foreword to this book: ‘He was a great pioneer of modern architecture in his own right, the equal of Wright in many ways capable of outstanding brilliance in conception when the occasion permitted...’ " (Broadside published by Prairie School Press, Chicago) Gift of Greg Brewer.

Title: Purcell & Elmslie, Prairie Progressive Architects (Hard Cover DJ) (Published by Gibbs Smith Publisher, Layton, Utah)

Author: Gebhard, David; Edited by Gebhard, Patricia

Description: Explores the work of two important members of the organic architecture movement, and celebrates their tremendously important contributions to American architecture and the Prairie School. Wishing to return to simplicity and honesty, Purcell and Elmslie created homes and buildings that were consistent with a democratic society-simple forms, the natural use of textural materials and decoration, and buildings that accommodated the nature of a site. As did Louis Sullivan and Frank Lloyd Wright, Purcell and Elmslie held the conviction that a building does not end with its simple structure, but reaches its final and logical culmination in the clothing-color, situation and natural environment, together with its decoration of glass, terra-cotta, and other textural materials. (Publishers description.) Wright is mentioned throughout this book. Original hard cover list price $29.95.
