Description: "Bostonians Turn out for Wright.

Description: "Mr. Wright Goes to Los Angeles. The architect is unique who can command sustained applause of two or three minutes upon his introduction to an American audience. Such, nevertheless, was the reception given Frank Lloyd Wright by some 2500 people who in January attended the principal public address of the dedication program of the new College of Architecture at the University of Southern California. And while in Los Angeles a celebrity is someone to be looked at, it was evident that this audience had come to hear, rather than just see... In his more serious moments, Wright declared that architecture must be the center line of any indigenous American culture..." Original cover price $0.50. (Sweeney 514)

Description: Book Review: "Frank Lloyd Wright on Architecture, Selected Writings 1894-1940", Edited with an introduction by Frederick Gutheim (265 Pages, Duell, Sloan and Pearce Inc, New York, $3.50) Here in a Red Nine Square volume, that must be opened upon a desk if is to be read with any comfort, are the chronological outburst of the creative architectural mind: a mind with a theory that has been abused, criticized, prostituted, but never truly grasped. For fifty years Frank Lloyd Wright has endeavored to rescue architecture from the archaism of assorted eclectic inspirations. He has preached his own theory of an organic architecture whenever an occasion arose; in a foreword to a catalogue of Japanese prints, in a description of the scenic beauties of South Dakota, in criticism of the published works of contemporary architects..."

Title: Pencil Points Reader, A Journal for the Drafting Room - 1920-1943 (Hard Cover DJ) (Published by Princeton Architectural Press, New York)

Author: Hartman, George E.; Cigliano, Jan

Description: Dust jacket: "The first issue of the legendary architecture journal Pencil Points appeared in 1920 as ‘a journal for the drafting room.’ Born out of The Architectural Review, and merged with Progressive Architecture in 1943, Pencil Points became the leading voice in architectural and graphic design when modernism flourished, introducing key players from America and Europe. It also established the agenda in architectural theory: multivolume pieces by John Harbeson, Talbot Hamlin, Hugh Ferris, and others dealt with major issues that are still relevant today-architectural education and practice, small-house design and portable housing, city planning, and the influence (or not) of modernism. Items like George Nelson's series of reports from Europe in the early 1930s, H. Van Buren Magonigle's diatribes against modernism, and a glossary of Ecole des Beaux-Arts terms sit side-by-side with the best architectural drawings and photographs of the 20th century. Pencil Points Reader re-publishes the most important essays from the journal's twenty-three years, arranged chronologically, and offers an insider's introduction by John Dixon, the former executive editor of Progressive Architecture. Pencil Points Reader is a prized collector's edition and an essential addition to any architectural library." Frank Lloyd Wright is referred in many articles, on pages 245, 284, 292, 312, 420, 470, 489, 562, 598, 626 and includes references to Fallingwater, the Larkin Building and St. Marks Tower, with two illustrations of St. Marks Tower.

Title: Progressive Architecture - June 1959 (Published monthly by Reinhold Publishing Corporation, New York. Bound into May-August, 1959, Volume 40, Part 2)

Author: Boyd, Thomas J.

Description: Frank Lloyd Wright has endorsed terne verbally and through imaginative use. He has said: "Because of its inherent adaptability in both form and color, terne permit's the visible roof area to become a significant part of structural design. His Dopkins residence, at North Canton, Ohio, utilizes terne in a Burmuda-type/horizontal-seam construction. Two forthcoming Wright projects also evidence is appreciation of its qualities: one, the terne roof for the Fasbender Clinic in Hastings, Minnesota, features a deep, all-around overhang for an effect of massive continuity and strength; the other, the Wedding Chapel of the Claremont Hotel in Berkeley, California, shows an entirely different use of terne to create a contemporary pagodalike feeling of lightness, airiness, and grace. Includes one illustration of the Wedding Chapel for the Claremont Hotel. Original cover price $1.00.

Since there are few of us who have not been dazzled by Frank Lloyd Wright and his place in the sun and since few of us could look at his extraordinary vigor without envy, any appraisal of recent works, including his literary production, is colored by admiration for a vivid and wonderfully cantankerous personality. This he knew and liked. He swept his Cloak and white mane across the American stage with all of the assurance of a long thespian career, in which great tragedy picturesque drama have been included..."

Description: Book Review: "The Shining Brow - Frank Lloyd Wright", Wright, 1960. "Paean Sung Too Soon. Olgivanna Lloyd Wright has written a tribute to her late husband, Frank Lloyd Wright, whom she admired both as a man and as an architect. To write so soon after his death no doubt was of great therapeutic value to the author; the benefit to the public at large is questionable. The Shining Brow gives the distinct impression of being hastily concocted of bits and pieces. ...Perhaps the very best of The Shining Brow can be discovered in the direct quotations from Frank Lloyd Wright himself, which scarcely need embellishing. Mrs. Wright is a talented speaker, teacher, writer. But she might have waited awhile to construct her Taj Mahal."

Description: "Jens Jensen and the Chicago School. Today, when landscape design is taking on a new lease on life, it is a good time to observe the centennial of Jens Jensen, perhaps America’s greatest landscape architect. In addition to being a superb artist in his own right, Jensen was active in Chicago... With Wright, Jensen’s relationship was more complex... For many years the two were close friends... Wright was a frequent visitor at the Jensen office and that there was much correspondence between them... Wright offered Jensen the hospitality of Taliesin and in later years even invited him to lecture to the Taliesin Fellowship. Few artists were so honored." Extensive article which details Jensen’s relationship to Wright. Includes seven photographs, one of which is the Abby Beecher Roberts Residence (1936 - S.236). (Sweeney 1414) Description: Book Review: "Drawings for a Living Architecture" Kaufmann, 1959. "In the year since the death of Frank Lloyd Wright, it has become clearly evident that his published works should be classified in two categories: his theory of architecture and the architecture itself. In the area of theory many fine and even less than fine works are available, but in the second category two volumes alone remain as the outstanding expression of the architect’s hand - the Wasmuth Monograph of 1910 and this recent book... In my opinion, this latter book, in years to come, will remain the most important one relative to Wright’s work..." Includes one portrait of Wright.

Title: Progressive Architecture - December 1963 (Published monthly by Reinhold Publishing, New York)

Author: Manson, Grant

Description: Book Review. House Beautiful, Gannett, Wright, Prairie School, 1963, $22.50. "... To hold in hand a book which so engrossed Wright’s creative interest two-thirds of a century ago, even though it is a facsimile, is an evocative experience. Its thin elegance, its characteristically square shape, its curious mixture of literary influence from Elbert Hubbard and design influences Louis Sullivan overlaid
by Wright’s youthful personality brings the freshness of the early days at Oak Park powerfully to mind. With ease, we project ourselves into the magic circle of the W’s: Waller, Williams, Winslow, Wright – the architect and his immortalized first patrons. We gather glacial boulders from the bed of the Desplaines River to place around the doorway (much to low for convenience, of course) of the Williams house. We walk with Waller along A\ugvergne Place, the quiet new street which he and Wright have just laid out, perhaps gathering a few dried teasels as we stroll, to place in a copper bowl on our plate-rail over the fireplace.
