New York: Random House, 1957.
Hardcover. First edition. Page edges foxed, else fine in very near fine, first issue dustwrapper with some very slight rubbing. A recent study of Rand's cultural legacy concluded that no single work of the 20th Century had influenced more individual readers than this objectivist allegory. Additionally, *Harper's Index* reports that 12% of all Playboy Playmates since 1959 claimed either this or Rand's *The Fountainhead* as their favorite book, although our attempts at using copies as bait continue to prove futile. A beautiful copy.
