Description:
We carry the largest selection of rare, signed, and manuscript Ayn Rand on the planet! Rand's first novel, We the Living Macmillan, New York, 1936. Hardcover. SIGNED/DATED by Rand in a beautiful Facsimile First Edition dust jacket. Astonished by the intellectual trends of America's "Red decade," immigrant Rand set out to uphold the American ideals of individualism and freedom. Rand resolved to expose the "noble ideals" of Communism through the story of three young people whose lives are sacrificed by an all-powerful state. Originally titled "Airtight," We the Living was not a commercial success. Eighteen months after its release, the novel was out of print. Rand's royalties from the first American edition amounted to $100! This volume contains Rand's original UNrevised text. Covers soiled; No writings or markings of any kind, save for previous owner's barely visible embossed name. Encased in a handsome red cloth clamshell box embossed with a red star like the jacket. A handsome addition to any Ayn… Read more

[No place]: Angelika Films, 1988. First edition thus. Italian film with English subtitles. Originally released in 1942 as two films, "Noi Vivi" and "Addio Kira," directed by Goffredo Alessandrini and starring Alida Valli, Rossano Brazzi, and Fosco Giachetti.

New York: Random House, 1959. First Edition Thus. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. Very Good in a Very Good jacket, unclipped ($4.95), generally rubbed and toned, a few small chips and closed tears at the back panel. Blue buckram, rubbed at the edges and corners, with black ink panels and gilt lettering. Square, bound with a dark blue top stain and some reading wear, former owner's bookplate inside the front board, clean otherwise. Rand's debut novel, one that introduced a theme relevant to most of her work: the individual against the collective. "WE THE LIVING is not a story of politics, but of the men and women who have to struggle for existence behind the Red banners and slogans. It is a picture of what those slogans do to human beings, what kind of men are able to survive and which of them remain as the ultimate winners.
