First editions of the complete run of Ayn Rand’s The Objectivist.

In her opening essay For the New Intellectual (1961), Ayn Rand wrote of a new affinity for non-fiction in pursuit of her philosophy of Objectivism. Following a lecture series organized by Nathaniel Branden in 1958, the two founded a four-page monthly Objectivist Newsletter in 1962, which they expanded in 1966 into a monthly magazine called The Objectivist that continued until September 1971. In her opening to the Newsletter, Rand defined Objectivism as a philosophical movement advocating "certain political principles— specifically, those of laissez-faire capitalism." In the final issue of The Objectivist, Rand returned to those opening words, and also emphasized her principled advocation "of reason… This—the supremacy of reason—was, is and will be the primary concern of my work, and the essence of Objectivism." Edited and largely written by Rand and (until May 1968) Branden, this complete run of The Objectivist also features articles by Rand biographer Barbara Branden and Leonard Peikoff (founder of Ayn Rand Institute) and an article by Alan Greenspan ("Gold and Economic Freedom"). See Perinn C6, C12a. Bookplate on chemise. Most issues with subscriber's address printed on rear wrapper.
