Special edition with pages 233-380 devoted to Wright but also a specially bound issue in red cloth. Filled with color photographs, plans, interiors, and furniture. An important issue in House Beautiful's promotion of Wright's work under the editorial leadership of Elizabeth Gordon; John deKoven Hill, Architectural Editor; and Robert Mosher, Buildings Editor. deKoven Hill and Mosher were former Taliesin Apprentices. [Sweeney 1066] Also significant is that two separate bibliographies are laid in, both by Bernard Karpel, librarian at the Museum of Modern Art. The first, "What Men Have Written About Frank Lloyd Wright" (November 1959) 34 pp, 4to. [Sweeney 1046]. The second, "Frank Lloyd Wright" (October 1959) 10 pp. 4to {Sweeney 1264] was issued as a supplemental to the 1955 bibliography and in conjunction with the October 1959 edition of "House Beautiful" published as a memorial to Wright, who had died on April 9th of that same year at the age of 91.
