    Ayn Rand. Atlas Shrugged. New York: Random House, 1957.

    First edition. Octavo. 1168 pages.

    Publisher's green cloth with gold and black stamping. Top page edges finished in blue. Cloth is lightly rubbed with some mild darkening along the top edge. Foxing is present on the page edges, endpapers, and the first couple of pages at the front and rear. Rear hinge is cracked. Jacket is price-clipped with some darkening to edges and rear panel. Retail price stickers are still attached to front flap near clip. Edge wear with several small chips at top of spine. The jacket has a small repair at about mid-spine on the crease of the rear joint. Overall, a very good copy.

    "Who is John Galt?" Rand's magnum opus is often cited by many as a life-changing novel. It is "the astounding story of a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world - and he did." This literary and philosophical masterpiece stresses the importance of individual achievement and personal responsibility, and it continues to influence readers fifty years after its initial publication.
