Mendelson House,T1308.

Dalton: The only items in the files at Taliesin are 17 drawings,the best of which are shown by BBP in his Monograph,V.3 and Taschen,V.1.
All communications of his in the various categories of the "Index" don't exist. Maybe victims of one of Taliesin's ledgendary fires.

Books

I don't think this one has been mentioned: "Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin Fellowship" by Myron and Shirley Marty. Although not members of the Fellowship,but historians, the Martys have given an interesting view of the Fellowship.

Sturges "Improved"

Two other houses similar to the Sturges maybe worth looking at as Wright considered them to be "improvements" to the type.

T:V.3,324.
