More than Fifty Years of the Wilbert & Marilyn Hasbrouck Collection of Books on Frank Lloyd Wright, The Prairie School and Related Material: Part I When it comes to architecture-related books and documents, Bill and Marilyn Hasbrouck have always had a sixth-sense for finding the rare and unusual. Their legendary Prairie Avenue Bookshop in Chicago was always the ?go to? place to secure elusive historical items. And while visiting their store, it was impossible to leave without finding other things that you never even knew existed. Bill and Marilyn?s shop was always a literal open book for its customers. With a shop so filled with diverse and wonderful treasures, it was natural to wonder what was in their personal library at home. Well?..here?s the answer. Their decision to downsize has resulted in some eye-opening lots for anyone interested in architecture, design, planning, landscape and other related disciplines. I?m surprised ? and at the same time I?m not surprised. Wonder no more. Welcome to an exciting book hunting expedition courtesy of Bill and Marilyn. Opportunities like this don?t happen often, so enjoy!
