Description:
Indianapolis: Bobbs-Merrill Company, 1943. First edition, first issue with first edition stated on the copyright page of the author's first major novel, as well as her first best-seller. Octavo, original red cloth. Association copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Jack L. Warner - Thank you for your courage and for a magnificent picture - with my profound gratitude - Ayn Rand. January 7, 1949." The recipient, Jack Warner, was the co-founder, president, and driving force behind the Warner Bros. Studios. His career spanned some 45 years, its duration surpassing that of any other of the seminal Hollywood studio moguls. Rand sold the film rights to Warner several years earlier with the contractual proviso that she would provide the screenplay, which would be unalterable. In fact, the director wanted changes, but Warner supported the author and honored the contract. This book's inscription, clearly referring to this, was presented about a half year prior to the film's release. Of… Read More

Octavo, original red cloth. Association copy, inscribed by the author in the year of publication on the front free endpaper, "To Gertrude Lynneberg- - with my best wishes for long years of happiness- Ayn Rand November 16, 1943." The recipient, Gertrude Lynneberg was the sister-in- law to Linda Lynneberg, also known as Aslaug Lynneberg, a lifelong friend of Rand. Near fine in a very good first issue dust jacket with some chips and wear. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box made by the Harcourt Bindery. First editions in the original dust jacket are uncommon, association copies rare. Although Rand was a previously published novelist and had a successful Broadway play, she faced difficulty in finding a publisher she thought right for The Fountainhead.

Description:
Corrected in Ayn Rand's pen, Rand's ORIGINAL Typescript for her occasional column, "Brief Comments" in her magazine The Objectivist, Vol 7, No. 11, November, 1968, but published January, 1969. Handwritten and typed on verso of The Objectivist letterhead. On Christmas Eve, 1968, in the most highly watched television broadcast of its time, Apollo 8 crew members read from the Book of Genesis, King James Version, as they orbited the Moon. Ayn Rand's "brief comments" on Apollo 8 elucidates "mankind's tragedy: a demonstration of man's epistemological double standard in the fields of science and of the humanities." The typescript offers a rare glimpse into Ayn Rand's literary and philosophic mind at work, condensing, cutting, adding, recasting her own words to achieve painstaking precision. A copy of The Objectivist, where Rand's comments originally appeared, accompanies the Rand Typescript. Apart from Rand's "Brief Comments," never reprinted elsewhere, this issue contains the last part of Ayn Rand's… Read More

Description:
Indianapolis: Bobbs-Merrill Company, 1943. First edition, first issue with first edition stated on the copyright page of the author's first major novel, as well as her first best-seller. Octavo, bound in full morocco, gilt titles to the spine, raised bands, gilt ruled to the front and rear panel, marbled endpapers, original red cloth bound in at rear. Boldly signed by Ayn Rand on the title page. In fine condition. Although Rand was a previously published novelist and had a successful Broadway play, she faced difficulty in finding a publisher she thought right for The Fountainhead. She let Macmillian Publishing go when they rejected her demand for better publicity (Branden, 1986), and when her agent criticized the novel, she fired him and handled submissions herself (Burns, 2009). After sifting through eleven more publishers, Rand finally released The Fountainhead with Bobbs-Merrill Company in 1943. The reception was instant, and The Fountainhead became a bestseller in two years. The protagonist,… Read More

Description:
Stated First Edition; A Very Good book in a Near Fine 2nd state price clipped dust jacket. An outstanding copy of this seminal novel; this copy is in the first state red cloth binding, housed in a beautiful sharp and bright 2nd state jacket with the Rand portrait and 3 blurbs to the back cover; uncommon in this condition, particularly with the exceptional jacket. This copy is in very good or better condition with a square, tight binding, gold lettering over clean red boards, and crisp pages free from any markings; the book does show mild fading to the spine, some minor rubbing to the edges, and some light spotting and off-setting to the free papers. Housed in an original, near fine dust jacket that shows only some slight rubbing and creasing to the edges and flaps, a slight wrinkling to the panels, a small area of black stain to the spine head, and a few tiny ink marks to the flaps. Housed in a lovely clamshell box. Overall, a highly collectible and presentable copy; in a protective Mylar cover and… Read More

Description:
Indianapolis and New York: The Bobbs-Merrill Company, 1962. Although Rand was a previously published novelist and had a successful Broadway play, she faced difficulty in finding a publisher she thought right for The Fountainhead. She let Macmillian Publishing go when they rejected her demand for better publicity (Branden, 1986), and when her agent criticized the novel, she fired him and handled submissions herself (Burns, 2009). After sifting through eleven more publishers, Rand finally released The Fountainhead with Bobbs-Merrill Company in 1943. The reception was instant, and The Fountainhead became a bestseller in two years. The protagonist, Howard Roark, whose character was thought to be inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, is a young architect fighting against convention. Cited by numerous architects as an inspiration, Ayn Rand said the theme of the book was "individualism versus collectivism, not within politics but within a man's soul." Rand chose architecture as the analogy of her heady… Read More

Ayn Rand wrote the screenplay for the film adaptation herself, but later criticized the editing, production design and acting. Sales of Rand's novel increased following release and despite mixed critical reception at the time, the film has endured as a cultural touchstone, reflecting the… Read More
