The Fountainhead

By Rand, Ayn




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.

The Fountainhead

RAND, AYN

Indianapolis: Bobbs-Merrill, 1943. First Edition; first issue binding. Some waterstaining, but overall at least very good in dust jacket; in a custom clamshell box. An exceptionally important association copy; inscribed by the author, “To Jack L. Warner - Thank you for your courage and for a magnificent picture - with my profound gratitude - Ayn Rand. January 7, 1949.” 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 Rand’s fiction, The Fountainhead is generally conceded to be her most important and enduring work, a passionate portrait of uncompromising individualism. In the decades since its debut, the film has gained the critical acceptance, even the acclaim, that initially evaded it.

The Fountainhead

Rand, Ayn

Indianapolis and New York: The Bobbs-Merrill Company, 1943 First edition, first printing. Publisher's red cloth, lettered in gilt to the front board and spine; in the first issue dust jacket, with sixteen titles to the back panel, lettered in red, white and silver. Near fine, with light wear and rubbing to the extremities, a hint of faint spotting to the rear endpapers, former owner's pencil inscription to the front free endpaper; unclipped dust jacket, with some creasing to the front panel and spine, some toning to the spine, light soiling to the panels, small chips to the spine ends, light rubbing to the folds. Overall, a bright and pleasing copy in the rare original dust jacket, scarce in any condition. Housed in a custom brown folding box with brown morocco spine. The Fountainhead is Ayn Rand's first commercially successful novel and is centered on her philosophy of Objectivism, which maintains that individualism exists outside of consciousness and that the each person's moral life purpose should be one's own personal happiness. She continued to develop this philosophy in later novels, including Atlas Shrugged. The Fountainhead tells of protagonist Howard Roark, an architect determined to stay true to his personal ideas and ideals, even if it means rejection by mainstream society. As the dust jacket explains, "This book is based on a challenging belief in the importance of selfishness, on the provocative idea that man's ego is the fountainhead of human progress." Appropriately, this novel about individual struggle in the face of conformity had its own struggle to be published; The Fountainhead was rejected by thirteen publishers before being published by Bobbs-Merrill. The novel received a lack of critical success, but managed to become a popular best-seller, largely due to its fans' word of mouth.. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

The Fountainhead

Rand, Ayn

Indianapolis, New York: The Bobbs-Merrill Company, Publishers, 1943. First edition. [ii], 754 pp. 8vo. Original publisher's red cloth. Crude tape reinforcement along edges and spine, type-written spine labels, front cover gilt lettering rubbed off, dampstains to front cover, hinges reinforced with cloth, front free endpaper foxed and offset., binding cracked at title page. Ex-library, stamps to title and dedication pages, card pocket removed from rear blank. First edition. [ii], 754 pp. 8vo. Inscribed to critic Lorraine Pruette, "My *one* *and* *only* reviewer - thank you *now* for when you were the only voice of courage I heard - Ayn Rand. July 26th, 1949" Lorraine Pruette's review of The Fountainhead appeared in the New York Times Sunday Book Review on May 16, 1943. As Rand later recalled, "It saved my whole sense of the world at that time. It's the only intelligent major review of a novel I have had in my whole career," (Branden 179). Rand was disheartened by what she perceived to be an oversight of the book's ideological character on the part of mainstream reviewers. She felt that most contemporary critics were preoccupied with the architectural motif, the broad theme of social injustice, or technical aspects of her style as an author, rather than with her ideas on the limitations of modern society. By contrast, Pruette's positive assessment of the novel characterized the story as a radical indictment of collectivism, and an important and compelling testament to the primacy of the individual. She wrote that, "Miss Rand has taken her stand against collectivism... She has written a hymn in praise of the individual, and has said things worth saying these days." The inscription by Rand to Pruette several years later, in Pruette's personal copy of The Fountainhead, attests to Rand's sincere and enduring gratitude for Pruette's early championing of her most influential novel. Provenance: Lorine Pruette (inscription and bookplate)

The Fountainhead.

Rand, Ayn

London: Cassell, 1947. First British edition of Rands's breakthrough work and her first major literary success. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Ayn Rand on the front free endpaper. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with some light rubbing and wear. Rare and desirable signed. 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 themes because of the context of the ascent of modern architecture. It provided an appropriate mode to make relevant her beliefs that the individual is of supreme value, the "fountainhead" of creativity, and that selfishness, properly understood as ethical egoism, is a virtue. Some critics consider The Fountainhead to be Rand's best novel (Merill, 1991). Indeed, philosopher Mark Kingwell described it as "Rand's best work" (Kingwell, 2006). The novel has been adapted into other media several times. An illustrated version was syndicated in newspapers in 1945. Warner Bros. produced a film version in 1949; Rand wrote the screenplay, and Gary Cooper played Roark. Critics panned the film, which did not recoup its budget; several directors and writers have considered doing a new film adaptation. In 2014, Belgian theater director Ivo van Hove created a stage adaptation.

Alexander "became Rand's lifelong friend and once called her (undoubtedly to her delight) 'America's Joan of Arc'" (Heller, Ayn Rand, p. 133).

Hardcover. New York Bobbs Merrill 1943. Cloth, 8vo, 754 pages. Later printing of the first edition, with no printings stated but with all the other first edition points. In the second state dustjacket. Red cloth lettered in gilt on the front panel and spine . The dustjacket features a $3.00 price at the base of the front flat and a photo of the author along with three reviews of the book at the rear. All points are present: Page 9: The "9" looks like an "o" at the bottom. Page 321, Line 5: "referred" is spelled "refrred". Page 381, Line 4: The "G" in "G. W. " is slightly smaller. Page 480, Line 2: "Dominique" is spelled "Domininque". Rand was born Alisa Zinov'yevna Rosenbaum in 1905, into a middle-class family living in Saint Petersburg, Russia, the eldest of three daughters (Alisa, Natasha, and Nora) . Her parents were, Zinovy Zacharovich Rosenbaum and Anna Borisovna Rosenbaum, agnostic and largely non-observant Jews. Her father was a chemist and a successful pharmaceutical entrepreneur who earned the privilege of living outside the Jewish Pale of Settlement. (Wikipedia, 2010) . This book was Rand's first major literary success which became a huge seller, matching the later popularity of Atlas Shrugged. Made into a Hollywood film in 1949, with Gary Cooper and Patricia Neal in the lead roles, it has become an enduring piece of literature, more popular now than when published in 1943. On the surface, it is a story of one man, Howard Roark, and his struggles as an architect in the face of a successful rival, Peter Keating, and a newspaper columnist, Ellsworth Toohey. But the book addresses a number of universal themes: the strength of the individual, the tug between good and evil, the threat of fascism. Light use wear to cloth. Inside hinges are starting, but no markings, completely clean inside. Jacket has sunned spine and wear, especially at crown of spine, but is attractive. Overall Good Condition in Good Jacket.
