Ayn Rand Manuscript: Unpublished Notes for The Fountainhead

Autograph Manuscript from Ayn Rand’s journals, Circa 1938. On this page, Rand lists ten characters from her first bestseller, The Fountainhead, including one character, “Vesta,” later eliminated from the finished novel. Rand draws a line next to each name, then lists their years of birth and offers two estimates of their ages “at end of book.” Clearly, these handwritten lines predate Rand’s title for the book which would eventually make hers a household name. This information on Rand’s immortal characters appears nowhere in the novel or elsewhere. A remarkable page of The Fountainhead’s history. Page chipped at all edges. Item #2008. $5500
