Taliesin Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation 1985

By: N/A

Price: $20.00

Publisher: Scottsdale, Ariszona, Printer only: 1986

Seller ID: 0086

Condition: Very good


This is a beautiful oversized, full color promotional piece likely sold to tourists. The condition is quite good with just a flat crease to the upper front corner and isolated wear spots along the spine which in no way compromise it. It's in full color throughout with gorgeous photos of Wright's work and that of Taliesin Architects. The name Taliesin derives from that of a Welsh poet-bard who sang of the glories of fine art. The piece (it seems too big to call a booklet) measures 9"x12". Some extra goodies were found tucked inside which I will pass along. One is an empty shopping bag from a T... View more info

Very clean, nicely kept magazine marred only by a small abrasion to outer front edge, a small chip to side of one page (not affecting text) and creasing to the same page which has been pressed flat in the book press by me. As you can see, the cover caricature is Frank Lloyd Wright, the star of this issue. His accompanying article is entitled "How Frank Lloyd Wright Got His Medal". To give you an idea of the tone the teaser reads, "He behaved rather like Moses with a quart of skimmed milk and an aggressive gall bladder ...." Another story of note is "The Guns at Falaise Gap", a first person acc... View more info

Here we have three clean brochures which arrived together in the same cello bag. The two most important are'lt dated, but I did find a very small date on the campus map -- 1998.The major brochure with the photo of FLW opens to reveal four panels with information about local buildings illustrated with eight sepia pictures. Turn it over and you have more info and three more photos. The second brochure tells the story of Wright's relationship with the college. Thirdly, we have a campus map. The only fault to these may not be a fault at all because it provides additional information. On the back o... View more info

Condition: Good condition


This souvenir book commemorates the Lousiana Exposition of 1904 with two hundred photos including 32 colorgraph views and 188 copperplate scenes. Every picture is full page with descriptions beneath. The book measures 5-1/2" x 6-3/4" and has clean and tightly bound pages. I cleaned the blue boards and improved them quite a bit, but there's still some small areas of stubborn soil. The original owner's name, F.J. Hall 1904, written with abandon on the title page. There is also a blank bookplate inside the back cover, but no name. (Entertainment Box 1) View more info

Condition: Fine condition


This is an outstanding booklet. I've never seen it before, but I got it last week thinking it was new, which it is not. It was published in 1988. Much time, effort, and creativity ended in a guide which explains architectural types of homes and buildings in Mansfield and Richland County and has photos for each. There's also information on repairs of roofs, foundations, gutters, siding and more, all of which offer either photos or drawings. What I like best about this booklet though is the art -- it's gorgeous and there are several examples including a fold-out at the back of book.The guide me... View more info
