Berlin: Ernst Wasmuth, 1910. Original lithograph on tissue paper. 15.94 x 25.25" (40.5 x 64 cm). Artist's embossed stamp lower left. Archival mat and backing.
Provenance: The Prairie Avenue Bookshop, Chicago. The Bookshop recently closed and Wittenborn Art Books has taken over the distribution of the Wasmuth plates. Many of these were acquired from Wright's apprentices and bear the marginal water stains from the famous fire of 1914, which destroyed the architect's home and studio and most of the edition.
Text and title in German/Deutsch. Finely toned and exhibits chipping and staining, mostly marginal; else good. Saulte St. Marie, MI.
