        Atlas Shrugged.

      Random House, New York 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. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Daniel Verigen with my sincere appreciation Ayn Rand 1/6/65." Fine in a near fine first issue dust jacket with touch of wear. Dust jacket design by George Salter. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A superior example. "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.

        American Solider Photo Album

      Okinawa, 1957. Near Fine. Oblong photo album measuring 11" x 15". Black lacquer over wooden boards accented with inlaid pieces of mother of pearl appliques, and some hand-painted details, showing a mountain and two tradition-style Japanese buildings beside a body of water; album tied with silk cords. Very good plus with chips and tears. A collection of 73 photographs and snapshots of American soldiers stationed in Okinawa, at Sobe camp in the 1950's. The majority of the assemblage are black and white photos measuring 3.5" x 5" with some 3.5" x 2.25", two 8"x10", and a 5.5" x 14" group photo. All images are clear, a few have captions either in the margins or on the verso of the photo. The group photo is laid in at the rear of the album and is creased, with one section at the right margin torn away, causing minor loss. The album depicts soldiers on duty, a work in the machine shops, views of the base camp, "clowning in the China Sea," playing baseball and basketball, along with locals and town businesses. A picture of a camp sign indicates the soldier/photographer was stationed at Sobe Area, Rycom Gen. Depot, 65th Engineer Heavy Shop Company, 596th Engineer Maintenance Company, 526th Engineer Maintenance Department." A dozen of the photos show both African American and white soldiers sharing the basketball court, work duties, and the baseball field. One of the 8" x 10" photos shows a group of black and white soldiers sharing a traditional meal, seated on the floor around a table, all diligently employing their chopsticks. A caption on one of the baseball game photos identities it as being between the Sobe Engineers and the Magushaki [Hagushaki?] bombers, a Japanese team, at Ishikawa Beach. The final picture of the group is taken in front of a U.S. Army plane, dated 1957 and personalized, "Good Luck Lt. Bass," and is signed by seven men.

        Atlas Shrugged

      New York: Random House, 1957 FIRST EDITION. Inscribed and signed by Rand to Mr. and Mrs. Capuletti "for your triumph over the non-objective in art" and dated 17 May 1960. Jose Manuel Capuletti was perhaps Rand's favorite painter, and she collected his works avidly. She wrote in 1966, "to the extent that one may detect certain dominant values in different cultures, one could say the work of Capuletti has the passionate intensity of Spain, the elegance of France, and the joyous, benevolent freedom of America." "The book made Rand a hero to many business owners, executives, and self-identified capitalists, who were overjoyed to discover a novel that acknowledged, understood, and appreciated their work ... She presented a spiritualized version of America's market system, creating a compelling vision of capitalism that drew on traditions of self-reliance and individualism but also presented a forward-looking, even futuristic ideal of what a capitalist society could be ... Rand's defense of wealth and merit freed capitalists from both personal and social guilt simultaneously ... In Rand business had found a champion, a voice that could articulated its claim to prominence in American life" (Burns, Goddess of the Market: Ayn Rand and the American Right). Alan Greenspan declared, "Of all my teachers, Arthur Burns and Ayn Rand had the greatest impact on my life... Ayn Rand expanded my intellectual horizons, challenging me to look beyond economics to understand the behavior of individuals and societies." NYPL Books of the Century 163. Original cloth, without dust jacket. Rubbed, tear to hinge. Very good.

        The Hawk in the Rain.

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1957 - Octavo. Original black cloth, titles gilt to spine. With the dust jacket. The gatherings slightly loosened at the cords, the jacket tanned at the spine, but an excellent copy. First US edition, first printing, presentation copy of Hughes's first book, inscribed to the poet and actress Isabella Gardner on the title page, "To Isabella Gardner with good wishes Ted Hughes". Gardner (1915–1981) was the Massachusetts-born great-niece of the important Boston art collector Isabella Stuart Gardner (1840–1924) and the cousin of the poet Robert Lowell. She studied acting at the Leighton Rollins School of Acting and the Embassy School of Acting in London, before moving to Chicago, where she edited the Poetry magazine from 1952 to 1956 under Karl Shapiro. She published four poetry collections in her lifetime, Birthdays from the Ocean (1955), The Looking Glass (1961), West of Childhood (1965), and That Was Then (1980). Her biography – Not At All What One is Used To: The Life and Times of Isabella Gardner, by Marian Janssen – was published in 2010. Sylvia Plath herself is noted to have considered Gardner a rival to the title "Poetess of America". Somewhat suggestively, Hughes has added in pencil to the rear free endpaper his address while staying in Boston, "Ted Hughes, Suite 61, 9 Willow St, Boston 8 -". Sagar & Tabor A1b; Journals, ed. Hughes & McCullough, p. 211. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
