One with its own swimming pool, soda fountain, sauna and telescope-equipped observatory? If you have $1.5 million to spare, you can do more than picture yourself there. Indeed, Sotheby Parke Bernet International Reality, a two-year-old offshoot of the art, jewelry, and antiques auction gallery, has the house for you." Stamped on clipping: "Oct 1 1978." Photographed on September 25, 1978. Acquired from the achievers of the Christian Science Monitor.

Date: 1956

Title: Dudley Spencer Residence, Wilmington, Delaware, Sheet No. 7, Millwork Details, 1956 (1956 - S.402).

Description: Millwork details for the Dudley Spencer Residence, Sheet No. 7. FLLW Foundation #5635.12. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1956. The first design, Scheme #1, an L-shaped Usonian house with a living room roof that slopes upward, was rejected by the Spencers. Scheme #2 was accepted. Scheme #2 is what Frank Lloyd Wright called a solar Hemicycle. Very similar to the Laurent (1949) and Pearce (1950) Residences. The Spencers moved into their home in 1959.
       On Sheet 6 of the plans, Frank Lloyd Wright specified mahogany be used in all the cabinetry. Honduras mahogany was used throughout. On Sheet #7, Wright details the design for the fascia, indents every 4". The visible height calculates to 3". This design was used throughout the house in the trim, lighting, picture frames and trimming out all the built-in and stand alone furniture. “To make the furniture, Spencer hired Robert Baker, who built models at DuPont’s craft shop. Baker built the streamlined dining table and six low, open-backed chairs in his basement workshop... The furniture is trim, with clean lines reminiscent of a yacht. The only embellishments are dentil molding accents.” Delaware Today, Eileen Smith Dallabrida, July 11, 2013. Lower text: “Millwork Details. House for Mr. And Mrs. Dudley W. Spencer. Brandywine Head, Delaware. Frank Lloyd Wright, Architect. Sheet No. 7, Details - Millwork.” Within square: “FLLLW, Oct 10, 56.” See additional details...

The stone came from Avondale, Pennsylvania, and Cumberland Ridge, Tennessee (where Wright had built a Usonian house of this type of stone in 1950). The woodwork is Honduras mahogany, and steel supports the cantilevered roof. The carport was added later.” W. Barksdale Maynard, Society of Architectural Historians, University of Virginia Press.

Title: House & Garden Book of Style (Hard Cover DJ) (Published by Clarkson P{otter / Publishers, New York)

Author: Browning, Dominique; Slesin, Suzanne; Irving, Carolina; Frank, Cynthia; Pochoda, Elizabeth; Moonan, Wendy; Cunningham, Caroline

Description: Dust jacket: For the past century, one name has defined American taste: House & Garden magazine. No matter what period, or what style, House & Garden has been there to chronicle the way we live-and the way we want to live. Now, as the magazine celebrates its one hundredth anniversary, the House & Garden Book of Style looks at the bright present instead of the dimming past: here is the very best of contemporary dec-orating, covering everything from Shingle-style beach cottages to ornate town houses and cutting-edge lofts.
       The domestic arts are flourishing today, bringing an unprecedented range of choices to an enthusiastic audi-ence. The result is that for the first time no one style dominates American decorating in the way that Art Deco did in the twenties, Modernism did in the fifties, or Pop Art did in the sixties. As editor-in-chief Dominique Browning points out in her foreword, "We live in a time that celebrates variety, and our job at House & Garden has been to chronicle all the different kinds of stylishness that enthrall and delight our modern sensibilities."
       Seven sections, the last being Mid-Century Modern. One of the five homes featured in this section is Frank Lloyd Wright’s Bachman-Wilson House. Includes five photographs of the home.

Title: Frank Lloyd Wright's Bachman-Wilson House (Soft Cover) (Published by Scala Arts Publishers, Inc. New York)

Author: DeBerry, Linda; Turk, Dylan

Description: Originally designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1954, the Bachman-Wilson House now resides, fully restored, in the grounds of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas. It is an example of what Wright called "˜Usonian" architecture, a distinctly American and democratic style of residential architecture he developed during the Great Depression to be within the reach of the average middle-class family, without sacrificing quality. The house was originally situated in New Jersey but, after being threatened by repeated flooding, the entire structure was dismantled and transported to Crystal Bridges. Meticulously reconstructed from the original plans, the house opened to the public in the fall of 2015. This fully illustrated publication highlights this classic structure, and further cements the architectural legacy of Frank Lloyd Wright. (Publisher's description.) Original cover price $14.95.

Title: Wright and New York, The Making of America's Architect (Soft Cover) (Published by Yale University Press, New Haven and London)

Author: Alofsin, Anthony

Description: Back cover: Frank Lloyd Wright took his first major trip to New York in 1909, fleeing a failed marriage and artistic stagnation. He returned a decade later, his personal life and architectural career again in crisis. Booming 1920s New York served as a refuge, but it also challenged him and resurrected his career. The city connected Wright with important clients and commissions that would harness his creative energy and define his role in modern architecture, even as the stock market crash took its toll on his benefactors. Wright denounced New York as an "unlivable prison" even as he reveled in its culture. The city became an urban foil for Wright's work in the desert and in the "organic architecture" he promoted as an alternative to American Art Deco and the International Style. New York became a major protagonist at the end of Wright's life, as he spent his final years at the Plaza Hotel working on the Guggenheim Museum, the building that would cement his legacy...

Title: Frank Lloyd Wright's Boynton House: The Next Hundred Years (1908 - S.147) (Co-Produced by WXXI Public Broadcasting, Rochester NY and owner's, Fran Cosentino and Jane Parker)

Author: Cosentino, Fran; Parker, Jane

Description: Producer's Description: Frank Lloyd Wright's Boynton House: The Next Hundred Years provides an exclusive look inside the painstaking process of restoring and rehabilitating a historic home. Even today, the Boynton House - one of the few Frank Lloyd Wright creations still functioning as a private, single-family residence instead of a museum - stands out among the traditional Tudors and colonials that line the streets of its Rochester, New York neighborhood. Built in 1908, the Boynton House exemplifies Wright's signature "Prairie style," with its gently sloping roofs, long bands of windows, wide overhangs, low terraces, private gardens, open floor plan and built-in furnishings. Over time, however, this national treasure fell into disrepair, ravaged by 100 years of weather, termites and wear-and-tear. In 2010, new owners Fran Cosentino and Jane Parker set out to restore Boynton House to its original splendor, following Wright's design concepts and architectural philosophy. Cosentino guides cameras through every phase of the transformation, including the restoration of art glass panels and cantilevered front porch, the replacement of the roof, the addition of a three-car garage and back porch, and the conservation of original furniture.

Title: Hoffman Auto Showroom 1955 (1954 - S.380).

Description: Hoffman began importing Jaguars in 1948, and selected Wright to design the interior of the showroom. It featured a revolving display on which three to four cars could be displayed. The ramp rose from the back and partially wrapped around the ramp. The ramp allowed for additional displays as well as viewing cars from above. In 1953, when Hoffman began importing Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar opened their own showroom. Although designed as a Jaguar Showroom, it was never used as such. When the showroom opened in 1955, Hoffman displayed Porsches, BMWs and other cars. The circular emblem which sits atop the circular planter, just to the left of the BMW logo reads, "Hoffman, Largest selling organization of fine European cars in the U.S.A." Mercedes Benz, who held the lease, vacated the space, and in March, 2013, the building owners covered the windows and demolished the Wright designed showroom. Photographed by Ezra Stoller.

Title: Frank Lloyd Wright in New York. The Plaza Years, 1954-1959 (Hard Cover DJ) (Published by Gibbs Smith, Publisher, Layton, Utah)

Author: Hession, Jane King; Pickrel, Debra; Forward by Mile Wallace

Description: Examines the momentous five-year period when one of the world's greatest architects and one of the world's greatest cities dynamically coexisted. From his suite, or "Taliesin East," as it became known, Wright negotiated-with varying measures of creativity, cooperation, and combat - an astonishing array of exchanges with the city's architects, artists, journalists, editors, publishers, designers, celebrities, power brokers, and bureaucrats. Most significantly, he shepherded the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (1943-1959), his New York masterwork, to near completion from these sumptuous quarters. Explore the sophistication and vigor of Wright's final years, a time when he was an architect of legend and a bona fide celebrity, and New York was basking in postwar prosperity. (Publisher's description.) Original cover price $29.95.

BUFFALO SPREE
   
Date: 1979

Title: Buffalo Spree - Fall 1979 (Published quarterly by Spree Publishing Co., Buffalo, NY)

Author: Fox, Austin M.

Description: Frank Lloyd Wright: His Buffalo Houses Revisited. Because so much has been written about Frank Lloyd Wright, it is almost an impertinence to add anything more. It is a little "like trying to say something new about Shakespeare. But no plans for articles about Buffalo area architecture could even pretend to be complete without bringing in Wright somewhere in the blueprints. It might be well at the outset to settle once and for all a favorite Buffalo argument as to how many Wright houses there are in this area. The magic number is 6, of which 5 are in Buffalo and 1 is in Derby..." Includes six photographs of Wright buildings in buffalo. Original cover price $1.00.

ARTS IN VIRGINIA
 
Date: 1972

Title: Arts in Virginia - Fall, 1972 (Published in the fall, winter and spring by Virginia Museum, Richmond, Virginia)

Author: Cox, James A. D.

Description: "America's greatest architect left three houses in Virginia, each created during the Most prolific years of his architectural life. Like Sir Christopher Wren in England two hundred years before him, Frank Lloyd Wright dominated the architecture of his country for two generations. But unlike Wren, who was Surveyor General of the Kings work for almost fifty years, he was never given the opportunity of designing a building for his government and his fame resulted from his own persistent nature and his genius. In fact he had virtually two careers, for in his late sixties, when most men would be considering retirement, he emerged from a decade of inactivity and for the next twenty-five years pursued with increasing vigor and inventiveness the most prolific years of his architectural life. It is to this period that Virginia owes its three splendid examples of his work: the Pope-Leighey House at Woodlawn, another house in Northern Virginia (Louis Marden) and the Andrew Cook House in Virginia Beach. Includes 13 photographs and illustrations of Wrights work. Original cover price $2.00.
