About This Item

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 lecture on the papal encyclical Populorum Progressio, with quotations from The Fountainhead and Atlas; a critique of the newly formed National Foundation of the Arts and Humanities; and a review of Jacques Barzun's The American University by historian Robert Hessen. Mr Hessen had been Ayn Rand's personal assistant and typed seevral pages of the manuscript of Atlas Shrugged. This typescript is from his personal collection. Both items Fine. Book #C1121. $11,800. We carry the world's largest collection of rare, signed, and manuscript Ayn Rand in private hands.
