Frank Lloyd Wright is often described as the greatest of American architects - an opinion that Wright himself was quick to agree with. Brendan Gill not only gives us the fullest, fairest, and most entertaining account of Wright to date but also strips away the masks behind which the architect contrived to live and perform his unprecedented feats. On the front paste down there is an Ex-Libris stamp with the previous owners name in ink. The corners of the D/W show light wear. View more info
