Scarce First Printing
|Publisher||CASSELL AND CO|
Cassell and Co., 1947. FIRST EDITION, first printing. An extremely good, sharp copy of a very scarce true first British printing of Rand's first major literary success. Original publisher's black cloth binding with bright gilt titles. Endpages have matching tanning on portion as shown, slightest of starting in a couple of places. "In this iconic novel the protagonist, Howard Roark, is an individualistic young architect who chooses to struggle in obscurity rather than compromise his artistic and personal vision." Needless to say a must have for any rare book collection, or would make for an heirloom quality gift. (With US first editions commanding as much as $6500, this first printing of the UK edition is an excellent investment, as well as value.) 644 pages.
