New York: Random House, 1957
First edition. First printing. A near fine copy, just with a crease to the title page. In a very good, unclipped dust jacket. The extremities of the jacket with slight edge wear, chipping, and a couple of small closed tears. Spots of soiling to the rear panel, and little traces of damp stain to the verso. A small and discrete - almost imperceptible - tape reinforcement at the top of the rear flap verso. An uncommonly attractive example still. Rand’s fourth novel, and her masterpiece. She relates a dystopian society in which free enterprise is burdened to ruins by excessive and coercive government regulation. One of the most popular and influential works of 20th Century literature, Atlas Shrugged would only gain recognition decades after publication.
