Atlas Shrugged - RAND Ayn - 1957. [1279618]
1957 - RAND, Ayn. Atlas Shrugged. New York: Random House, (1957). Thick octavo, original green cloth, original dust jacket. $5200.First edition of one of the most popular and influential novels of the last 50 years."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). 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. First printing, in first-issue dust jacket. Perinn A4a. Only tiny bit of edge-wear to colorful dust jacket. A beautiful copy in fine condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
