This is a complete run of Ayn Rand's publication The Objectivist, volumes 1-10, January 1962 through September 1971 (when it ceased publication). This set consists two parts. -The first part is a bound volume of The Objectivist Newsletter, Vols. 1-4, 1962-1965, second printing, 1971. This volume is in fine condition with light age toning to exterior text block. Interior pages are clean and unmarked. After Volume 4, the publication's format changed from newsletter style to magazine style and became simply "The Objectivist." -The second part is a complete run of The Objectivist, volumes 5-10, in original softcover form, in wraps. These are all in fine condition, clean and unmarked, except for a rubber band mark on the front or back cover of 3 issues. ~~ This complete set forms a valuable representation of Rand's philosophical theories--which included rational egoism, individual rights, and laissez-faire capitalism--set in the context of the time it was published. Each issue contains an article written by Rand. Frequent contributors include Leonard Peikoff and Nathaniel Branden, with other contributors as well, including two articles by Alan Greenspan, an early ardent supporter of Rand. Greenspan's article entitled "Gold and Economic Freedom," discusses the role of gold and the gold standard in a free society. In the last issue, Rand delivers her last essay, entitled "Brief Summary," in which she comments on her theory and its progress, and in which she makes her famous remark: "The monster is Immanuel Kant." Since then it has been argued that she misunderstood Kant. Rand ceased publication of The Objectivist in order to return to a more personal newsletter called "The Ayn Rand Letter." ~~13 issues of this set contained two series of articles [the first eight by Rand, July 1966-Feb. 1967, and the last five by Peikoff, May 1967-Sept. 1967] which were republished in book form in 1967 under the title "Introduction to Objectivist Epistemology." These issues thus form the first publication/printings of the writings in the book. A very nice and rather rare complete set of this famous publication of this influential and controversial figure. ~~ Each of the two parts in this set as I have described them can also be purchased separately. Please see my separate listings for each. All inquiries will be answered promptly. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory #
