Title: Lost Chicago (Soft Cover) (First published in 1975 by Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston. This first printing of the revised and enlarged edition is published by Watson-Guptill Publications, a division of BPI Communications, New York)

Author: Lowe, David Garrard

Description: Back cover: "Lost Chicago explores the architectural and cultural history of this great American city, a city whose architectural heritage was recklessly squandered during the second half of the twentieth century. David Garrard Lowe’s crisp, lively prose and over 270 rare photographs and prints, illuminate the decades when Gustavus Swift and Philip D. Armour ruled the greatest stockyards in the world; when industrialists and entrepreneurs such as Cyrus McCormick, Potter Palmer, George Pullman, and Marshall Field made Prairie Avenue and State Street the rivals of New York City’s Fifth Avenue; and when Louis Sullivan, Daniel Burnham, and Frank Lloyd Wright were designing buildings of incomparable excellence. Here are the mansions and grand hotels, the office buildings that met technical perfection (including the first skyscraper), and the stores, trains, movie palaces, parks, and racetracks that thrilled residents and tourists alike before falling victim to the wrecking ball of progress." Includes four photographs of Frank Lloyd Wright’s work: Francis Apartments (1); Rookery (1); Midway Gardens (2). Original list price $29.95. (First Edition)

He was informed by the owner, that this house was designed ‘by a kind of famous guy, who worked here in the early 1900s, named Frank Lloyd Wright.’ Perhaps no one would have been more surprised at the misnomer than Frank Lloyd Wright..."

Description: Ward W. Willits Residence. "Getting it Wright. A highland Park couple have spent 17 years restoring a Prairie school masterpiece by Frank Lloyd Wright. The end, they confess, is not yet in sight. Early on a midwinter morning when it is so cold outside it hurts, the large, sparely furnished living room of Sylvie and Milton Robinson’s house in Highland Park is warmed by a brightly burning fire. Milt keeps adding logs, and the space is soon so toasty that he opens one of the art glass windows – linear planes and bands of gold and pearl held by metal caming..." Includes 7 photographs.

Author: Newman, Christine

Description: The Beachy Residence. "Re-Wright. When a young Oak Park couple finally bought the Frank Lloyd Wright house they had long admired, they teamed up with top-of-the-line talent to make a good house great. Carollina Song and Alec Harris were on an architectural tour in Oak Park about 10 years ago when they first saw the interior of the Frank Lloyd Wright house they would later buy. "I thought it was the most perfect house because of the way it combined a unified aesthetic with a floor plan that's livable." Song says. "There are floor plans Wright executed that are phenomenal architecturally but that I would find a little harder to live with, certainly in a family with children." Includes seven photographs of the Beachy Residence by Matthew Gilson. Original cover price $4.99.

Title: Chicago Art Deco Society - Fall 2005 / Winter 2006 (Published by the Chicago Art Deco Society, Chicago)

Author: Harris, Neil; Edelstein, Teri J.

Description: "The Powhatan, an impressive expression of deco design, even for the high-flying twenties... An associate architect was appointed to handle the exterior and interior appointments. This was Charles L. Morgan, an avowed modernist, a prominent architectural renderer (his depictions of new buildings were featured, on an almost weekly basis, by the Chicago Tribute in this period), and an associate of Frank Lloyd Wright. Morgan had lectured in Evanston for the Taliesin fellowship, and Wright had great confidence in him...) Of particular interest are the terra-cotta panels and black Indian sculptures of The Powhatan, completed in 1929. Morgan was involved with Frank Lloyd Wright during this time period, producing terra-cotta Nakoma and Nakomis sets, some produced with a black glaze, similar to those he produced for The Powhatan. For more information see our Wright Study on the Nakoma Clubhouse. Includes 26 photographs. Original Cover Price $4.00. See our Wright study on the Nakoma Clubhouse & Sculptures.

Author: Vinci, John

Description: Book Reviews: "More on the Work of Frank Lloyd Wright. During much of his career, except for small but devoted group of clients and admirers, Frank Lloyd Wright was a prophet without honor in his own land. The Germans aesthetician Kuno Francke, in America as an exchange professor at Harvard, toured the Midwest and discovered Wright’s buildings. On a visit to the architect’s Oak Park studio, Francke urged Wright to live and work in Germany..."
"...When the Wasmuth publication (Ausgefurte Bauten), titled (in English) studies and Executed Buildings of Frank Lloyd Wright appeared, the noted Eastern architectural critic Montgomery Schuyler wrote a (positive) review in the Architectural Record of April 1912. But even he had his reservations: ‘The defect of the Architecture is the same as the defect of the ‘Mission’ furniture, which it appears that the architect, commonly and properly, specifies to go with it. The stock unmodeled transitions give an air of something rude, incomplete, unfinished. The buildings seem ‘blocked out,’ and waiting completions rather than complete..." Original price, included with a membership of $20 peer year.  (Sweeney 93) "Architectural preservation in America is as often determined by historical incident as by the quality of the architecture itself but, as we are reminded by ‘Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio,’ here architecture and architectural history have become one. The most American of architects designed, and then frequently altered, this complex, and the changes reflect his growth as an artist as well as the growth of his family. Here he experimented with new ideas and he and his colleagues designed many of the projects included in the epoch-making Wasmuth publications..."

A magnificent rendering of Frank Lloyd Wright’s glass office building, a New York achievement discussed at length in architectural and intellectual circles, is of interest. Mr. Morgan is himself an architect as well as an etcher and painter and he is a devoted follower of Mr. Wright. The exhibition is well worth while."
