    Ayn Rand: First Edition of Atlas Shrugged (New York: Random House, 1957), first printing, 1,168 pages plus Author's Note, green cloth with gilt lettering on the spine and front board, 8vo (6" x 8.5"), dust jacket. This is the true first state of Rand's classic, with "First Printing" stated on the copyright page, "10/57" on the bottom of the front dust jacket flap and the publisher's name and address on the rear dust jacket flap. The book is in about fine condition, with light staining to the bottom textblock edge and minor wrinkling at the bottom edge of the text at the title page. The dust jacket is about fine as well, with minimal wear at the edges and corners. A beautiful example of Ayn Rand's classic work.
