Lincoln Center the Building of an Institution by Edgar B. Young, with Foreword by Frank Stanton, published in 1980, includes many photographs and illustrations that enhance the exciting presentation.

The fascinating account of a unique cultural and civic institution in America that sparked the building of other centers across the USA and abroad.

The book begins in 1955, with New York City's designating the Lincoln Square area, and ends with the acceptance of the Vivian Beaumont Theater as a constituent in 1980.

Young follows the Center's process from the ground breaking (1956-1959), the opening of Philharmonic Hall (1959-1962) and the opera (1962-1966), through completion (1966-1970) and an Epilogue.

While the blue and black dust jacket shows wear along its edges, the book itself is in excellent vintage condition.
