Atlas Shrugged (Presentation copy)

Rand, Ayn

New York: Random House, 1957. First edition. About Fine/Near Fine. Presentation copy, inscribed: "To William W. Brainard, Jr. / With the compliments of our mutual friend John C. Gall / Cordially / Ayn Rand / 9/17/57." A wonderful copy of the author's masterpiece. Brainard was a "gentleman farmer" from New Jersey ("a livestock farmer in a dinner jacket, per TIME Magazine), and distinguished himself on the popular level by being a judge at the Westminster Dog Show in 1958, 1972, and 1976, and as director of the American Whippet Club. The "mutual friend" John Gall mentioned by Rand, was her lawyer and close friend, and is thought to have been one of the inspirations for a major character in the book, John Galt. Book just about Fine with the spine very slightly toned, in a Near Fine dust jacket. Jacket with uniformly deep colors and only a touch of rubbing at the crown and three short, closed tears at the edges of the panels. A superior example with a lovely early inscription. Rand's magnum opus, where she develops her objectivist theory and explores the question, "what if society's genius goes on strike?" Rand considered the book "not about the murder of man's body, but about the murder and rebirth of man's spirit." "Atlas Shrugged" has remained one of the most popular and influential books written in the twentieth century; one survey in 1991 finding it second only to the Bible in having the greatest impact upon its readers. The book would also place first on Modern Library Reader's Poll of the Top 100 novels of the 20th century. "…the reader will stay with this strange world, borne along by its story and eloquent flow of ideas." (Contemporary Newsweek Review). About Fine in Near Fine dust jacket.

Atlas Shrugged.

Rand, Ayn

New York: Random House, 1957. First edition of one of the most influential novels of the twentieth century. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Deems Taylor- with profound admiration- Ayn Rand 6/18/58." The recipient, Deems Taylor was an American composer and music critic and a close personal friend of Ayn Rand. The author Nat Benchley, referred to him as "the dean of American music." He was also a member of the Algonquin Round Table, a group of writers, actors and critics that met almost daily from at Manhattan's Algonquin Hotel. Other friendships included composers George Gershwin and Jerome Kern and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Some rubbing to the bottom cloth, an excellent example in a near fine dust jacket. Jacket design by George Salter. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional association. The theme of Atlas Shrugged, as Rand described it, is "the role of man's mind in existence." The book explores a number of philosophical themes that Rand would subsequently develop into the philosophy of Objectivism. By 1984 more than five million copies of Atlas Shrugged had been sold, and in a 1991 Library of Congress survey Americans named it second only to the Bible as the book that had most influenced their lives.

Atlas Shrugged.

Rand, Ayn

New York: Random House, 1957. First edition of one of the most influential novels of the twentieth century. Large octavo, original green cloth, frontispiece stamped in gilt, spine stamped in black and gilt. Boldly signed by Ayn Rand on the front free endpaper. Fine a near fine first issue dust jacket with a few small closed tears. Dust jacket design by George Salter. From 1943 until its publication in 1957, [Rand] worked on the book that many say is her masterpiece, Atlas Shrugged. This novel describes how a genius named John Galt grows weary of supporting a society of ungrateful parasites and one day simply shrugs and walks away. He becomes an inspiration to like-minded men and women, all of whom eventually follow his example, until society, in its agony, calls them back to responsibility and respect. Again [as with Rand's novel The Fountainhead in 1943] reviews were unsympathetic, and again people bought the book" (ANB). The theme of Atlas Shrugged, as Rand described it, is "the role of man's mind in existence." The book explores a number of philosophical themes that Rand would subsequently develop into the philosophy of Objectivism. By 1984 more than five million copies of Atlas Shrugged had been sold, and in a 1991 Library of Congress survey Americans named it second only to the Bible as the book that had most influenced their lives.

RAND, AYN

New York: Random House, 1957. First Edition. Very good in dust jacket; in a custom quarter-leather clamshell box. Presentation copy; inscribed by the author a few months after publication. We have been reliably informed by someone involved with the publication that this book, while enjoying a large initial printing, sold unexpectedly slowly at first, even though it quickly became a bestseller. To this day, hundreds of thousands of copies are sold every year. While the book took decades to reach the movie screen, it turned out to not be worth the wait.

Rand, Ayn

New York: Random House. NF/NF. 1957. 1st Edition. Hardcover; 1st Printing. 1st edition/1st printing, Random House, 1957. NF+/NF+. Stated First Printing with all the correct points met for book and dustjacket. A lovely copy of this bulky book and fragile dustjacket. The Near Fine+ book (really close to Fine) is clean, straight and tightly bound with no soiling and no previous owner marks or names, the binding gilt on the front panel and spine is bright, unscratched and unfaded, binding edges and corners are unworn, and the dark green upper page edges are unfaded and rich in color. The only faults I can see is the usual tiny bit of faint smuding to the extreme outer corners of the bottom page edges from the weight of the book causing them to touch shelving at some point in its life, and an extremely tiny (less than sharpened pencil point sized) ink mark also on the lower page edges. The Near Fine+ price intact dustjacket has the correct '10/57' on the bottom of the front flap, the publisher's name/address on the bottom of the back flap, and the striking colors and design of this famous Salter-designed dustjacket are bright and unfaded. There has been a very small amount of extremely well done professional paper conservationist work that's hard to even see in little areas of the edges near the spine folds and a couple of the flap fold ends, there's just a touch of surface rubbing to the back panel, a mere hint of edge wear to a small portion of the lower back panel edge, and a couple of tiny very slightly toned spots in the white area of the back panel. Beautiful book and dustjacket that presents very near perfectly. This one needs no content synopsis - the author's opus, probably the all-time best selling fiction book with, it seems, never-ending relevance for good or bad as to what's happening in our world well over half a century after the book was published.; 8-11/16" x 6"; 1168 pages .
