About This Item

Chicago: The Ralph Fletcher Seymour Co., 1912. Tan Japanese paper over boards, lettered in dark blue, with abstract Crane device stamped in olive green. Fibrous Japanese paper endsheets. Neatly rebacked in tan paper board. Boards slightly smudged and lightly edgeworn, attractive period bookplate on front pastedown, otherwise a good copy, in oversize folding clamshell box. First published printing of the first edition, preceded by another printing which Wright disliked and destroyed (but for an alleged 'few'). This is one of the copies printed Japan vellum, of which, depending on the reference, there were either thirty-five or fifty copies. Inscribed by Wright in 1915 at the lower edge of the first blank, and signed with initials. This was Wright's first book for which he was the sole author of the text, and is the most substantive of his publications devoted to his pioneering passion for this subject. SWEENEY 109.
