About This Item

MATCHLESS, Utterly UNavailable elsewhere! A single page from Ayn Rand's journal detailing the names of all leading characters of her first bestseller, The Fountainhead, their birth years, and two estimates of their ages "at end of book." That "book" did not even have a title when Rand wrote this journal entry! Paper torn at all edges, not affecting Rand's handwritten text. A unique piece of The history of The Fountainhead, Rand's first literary masterpiece, now 75 years old! Book #P1213. $12,500. We carry the world's largest selection of Rare, Signed, and Manuscript Ayn Rand in private hands!

Synopsis

When The Fountainhead was first published, Ayn Rand 's daringly original literary vision and her groundbreaking philosophy, Objectivism, won immediate worldwide interest and acclaim. This instant classic is the story of an intransigent young architect, his violent battle against conventional standards, and his explosive love affair with a beautiful woman who struggles to defeat him. This edition contains a special Afterword by Rand's literary executor, Leonard Peikoff which includes excerpts from Ayn Rand's own notes on the making of The Fountainhead . As fresh today as it was then, here is a novel about a hero—and about those who try to destroy him.
