Frank Lloyd Wright (June 8, 1867 – April 9, 1959) was an American architect, designer, writer, and educator. He designed more than 1,000 structures over a creative period of 70 years. Wright played a key role in the architectural movements of the twentieth century, influencing architects through his works and hundreds of apprentices in his Taliesin Fellowship. Wright believed in designing in harmony with humanity and the environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture. This philosophy was exemplified in Fallingwater (1935), which has been called "the best all-time work of American architecture". Wright was recognized in 1991 by the American Institute of Architects as "the greatest American architect of all time". Wright was accorded significant honorary recognition for his lifetime achievements. He received a Gold Medal from The Royal Institute of British Architects in 1941. Eight of Wright's buildings – Fallingwater, Guggenheim Museum, the Hollyhock House, Jacobs House, the Robie House, Taliesin, Taliesin West, and the Unity Temple – were listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites under the title The 20th-century Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright in 2019.

Decorative front cover. Cover has some wear and soiling and paperclip marks inside front cover. Previous owner's mailing label on the title page.

This Study Plan Book contains 36 drawings of cupolas, 22 illustrations of foot bridges, either covered bridges, and a small amount of history on each subject. In architecture, a cupola (is a relatively small, most often dome-like, tall structure on top of a building. Often used to provide a lookout or to admit light and air, it usually crowns a larger roof or dome. The word derives, via Italian, from lower Latin cupola (classical Latin cupella), from Ancient Greek 'small cup' (Latin cupa), indicating a vault resembling an upside-down cup. The cupola evolved during the Renaissance from the older oculus. Being weatherproof, the cupola was better suited to the wetter climates of northern Europe. The chhatri, seen in Indian architecture, fits the definition of a cupola when it is used atop a larger structure. Cupolas often serve as a belfry, belvedere, or roof lantern above a main roof. In other cases they may crown a spire, tower, or turret. Barns often have cupolas for ventilation. Cupolas can also appear as small buildings in their own right. The square, dome-like segment of a North American railroad train caboose that contains the second-level or "angel" seats is also called a cupola.

His purpose of the order was to "... perpetuate the spirit of patriotism, the love of country, the memories, sad and pleasant, of our service during that period (World War I) and to further cement the ties of comradeship which bound us together in that critical hour of our nation's need....". Lt. Harold George was in the audience and helped to organize the Order of Daedalians 13 years later, on March 26, 1934, at Maxwell Field in Alabama. The headquarters of the Order moved to Kelly AFB, Texas, in 1954. The current national headquarters is at Joint Base San Antonio (formerly Randolph AFB), Texas. The Order established the Daedalian Foundation in 1959 to conduct educational, scientific and charitable activities in support of the Order's Tenets and Objectives. The Foundation is an IRS tax-exempt organization that relies on contributions, donations and bequests from the Daedalian membership to fund a comprehensive and varied scholarship program, administered through the 39th Flight Eagle Wing. The Foundation publishes the Daedalus Flyer, the Order's official publication and newsletter.

Scuff inside front cover. Cover has wear and soiling, with rubbed edges and bumped corners. Gilt edge. Boards weak. Stamp on half-title page. Henry Blackburn (1837-1890) was a noted English author, long associated with the field of Art. This respect to Randolph Caldecott, The Caldecott Medal was named in his honor. He exercised his art chiefly in book illustrations. His abilities as an artist were promptly and generously recognized by the Royal Academy. Caldecott greatly influenced illustration of children's books during the nineteenth century. For Maurice Sendak "Caldecott's work heralds the beginning of the modern picture book. He devised an ingenious juxtaposition of picture and word, a counterpoint that never happened before. Words are left out—but the picture says it. Pictures are left out—but the word says it." Sendak also appreciated the subtle darkness of Caldecott's work: "You can't say it's a tragedy, but something hurts. Like a shadow passing quickly over. It is this which gives a Caldecott book—however frothy the verses and pictures—its unexpected depth."

Dr. Reingold was mentor to a generation of historians of science, as well as the author or editor of six books, five volumes of "The Papers of Joseph Henry" and dozens of essays. He was instrumental in helping to transform the history of American science into a major area of historical research. His two most notable books were "Science in Nineteenth-Century America: A Documentary History," and "Science in America: A Documentary History: 1900-1939," co-authored with Ida H. Reingold. Many of his essays became required reading for students of the history of American science. They ranged from the relationship between science and technology in 19th-century America to Hollywood's depiction of the atomic bomb. Ida H. Reingold was a mathematician who has authored numerous technical papers.
