    Frank Lloyd Wright. An Autobiography Frank Lloyd Wright. London, New York, Toronto: Longmans, Green and Company: 1932.

    First edition, inscribed by the author. Large Octavo. 371 pages. Twelve plates at the rear with many black and white photographic illustrations.

    Publisher's black cloth covers with the front cover and spine lettered and geometrically illustrated in gilt and red. Inscribed by the author on the half-title page. Very minor rubbing to the covers, slightly bumped corners, some chipping and fraying to the head and spine, cracking hinges but still sound previous owner's stamp on the title page. Altogether a very good copy.

    The significantly influential architect, interior designer, educator, and philosopher, Frank Lloyd Wright (June 8, 1867 - April 9, 1959), authored and inscribed this intriguing autobiography. The work consists of three sections: book one covers family and fellowship, book two focuses upon his works, and book three explores freedom. It is in this work that one can sense the artistry of Wright's words and the genius behind his physical structures.
