Title: Atlas Shrugged
Author: Ayn Rand - Ayn Rand, born Alisa Zinov'yevna Rosenbaum, was a Russian-American novelist, philosopher, playwright, and screenwriter. She is known for her two best-selling novels "The Fountainhead" and "Atlas Shrugged" and for developing a philosophical system she called Objectivism.

Born and educated in Russia, Rand moved to the United States in 1926. She worked as a screenwriter in Hollywood and had a play produced on Broadway in 1935-1936. After two initially unsuccessful early novels, she achieved fame with her 1943 novel "The Fountainhead." In 1957, she published her best-known work, the philosophical novel "Atlas Shrugged." Afterward she turned to nonfiction to promote her philosophy, publishing her own magazines and releasing several collections of essays until her death in 1982.

Rand advocated reason as the only means of acquiring knowledge and rejected all forms of faith and religion. She supported rational and ethical egoism, and rejected ethical altruism. In politics, she condemned the initiation of force as immoral and opposed all forms of collectivism and statism, instead supporting laissez-faire capitalism, which she believed was the only social system that protected individual rights. She promoted romantic realism in art. She was sharply critical of most other philosophers and philosophical traditions.

The reception for Rand's fiction from literary critics has historically been mixed and polarizing, with extreme opinions both for and against her work commonly being expressed. Nonetheless, she continues to have a popular following, as well as a growing influence among scholars and academics. Rand's political ideas have been influential among libertarians and conservatives. The Objectivist movement attempts to spread her ideas, both to the public and in academic settings.

Width: 4.75" Height: 7.5"
Book Details: This is a scarce work of devotional literature. Preface states the following: "The Author of the Volume now presented to the Public, cannot be better described, than in the following account of him, extracted from the Christian Magazine for February 1800: 'On Saturday, December 7, 1799, died, at Carnworth, Mr. James Meikle, Surgeon there, aged 69 years. For many years he was a respectable member of the Associate Session and Congregation of Biggar, under the pastoral care of Rev. John Low. In prudence, meekness, modesty, and resignation to the disposals of Providence, he was exemplary. For at least forty years and upwards, he supported a character and had a conversation, highly ornamental to the Christian name. Through his great modesty, however, his eminency as a Christian was little known during his life-time; but by his writings left behind him, it appears his life has been spent in intimate fellowship with God, in habitual serious consideration of his latter end, and often times rejoicing in hope of the glory of God. For upwards of thirty years, it was his custom to spend one day each month, or if that was not in his power, part of a day, in solemn meditation on morality and the great world to come. His reflections on these occasions he has committed to writing, which gradually swelled into a volume. This he called his 'Monthly Interview with the King of Terrors.' His religious experience he has likewise recorded in another small volume, entitled, 'A Survey into the State of the Soul.'"

Condition / Notes: Antique volume is bound in blindstamped leather with bright stamped gilt lettering and decorative designs to spine.

$110

Book Details: This lot includes the group of antique compilations of The Gentleman's Magazine: and Historical Chronicle shown in the corresponding image(s). These volumes contain the issues of this periodical corresponding to the years 1812 and 1813. Texts are in double column. Title pages are illustrated. These volumes contain numerous engraved plates, including images of exteriors and interiors of English churches, Harlech castle in Meirioneddshire, Sandford Manor House, and a prospect of Liverpool.

The Gentleman's Magazine was founded in London, England, by Edward Cave in January 1731. It ran uninterrupted for almost 200 years, until 1922. It was the first to use the term "magazine" (from the French magazine, meaning "storehouse") for a periodical. Samuel Johnson's first regular employment as a writer was with The Gentleman's Magazine.

Cave's innovation was to create a monthly digest of news and commentary on any topic the educated public might be interested in, from commodity prices to Latin poetry. It carried original content from a stable of regular contributors, as well as extensive quotes and extracts from other periodicals and books. Cave, who edited The Gentleman's Magazine under the pen name "Sylvanus Urban", was the first to use the term "magazine" (meaning "storehouse") for a periodical. Contributions to the magazine frequently took the form of letters, addressed to "Mr. Urban". The iconic illustration of St John's Gate on the front of each issue (occasionally updated over the years) depicted Cave's home, in effect, the magazine's "office".

Lot 2266

$200

Book Details: This lot includes the antique Latin document on vellum shown in the corresponding image(s). There are two attached wax seals, one bearing an orb with cross, the other what appears to be a family emblem. These seals would seem to indicate that the document was sealed for secrecy, and not, as is often the case with church documents, for authenticity. All indications are that this text of 29 lines in ink relates to the Goodwyn family of England (the name and the word London appear at various points), most probably a determination of property rights involving various family members (and perhaps others) as the word longitude and latitude can clearly be made out in several places. The name which figures most prominently is that of Johanne Goodwyn, followed by that of Edmund Goodwyn. Other names mentioned are Thomas (?) Atkynson, (illegible first name) Calard, and Roberto Trappse (?). Document ends with a dating reference to Henry VIII.

Names on bottom fold to which seals are attached are signed with crosses preceding them. Outside of document bears the number 2 in quotation marks followed by what appears to be the word Alderman, his name, the name of another person, the word "date" followed by 10 April preceding the number 26 and a word beginning with a capital H (presumably the 26th year of the reign of Henry VIII, i.e. 1535) and the number 8 at the ends. Signature appears underneath.

Of particular note is the name of the town of Hertford, which also appears in the text, as it provides a connection between the Goodwyn (or Goodwin) family and descendants who settled in Connecticut

Condition / Notes: Well-preserved document measures approximately 17.25" x 11.5" Outside panels display light soiling. Otherwise in fine condition, with no tears, punctures or markings.

This folio volume contains unbound issues of Hamburger Nachrichten from 1912 and 1913 as well as issues of the illustrated Nazi periodical "Neue Zeit: Kampf- und Werkblatt fur nationalen Sozialismus" published in Troppau, Silesia (today Opava, Czech Republic) by Rudolf Jung. Newspapers from this last series are all from the year 1930. This publication, part party organ, part anti-semitic & racist propaganda tabloid, appeared twice a week and contains news items both local and regional, as well as reports on developments in Germany and abroad. Offers rare insight into the evolution of National Socialism both within Germany and in the Sudetenland. Paper contains a number of pamphlets/booklets that are laid in as supplements. Issues and supplements are illustrated with photos, drawings, cartoons, charts, graphs and/or maps.


Rudolf Jung (16 April 1882 - 11 December 1945) was an instrumental force and agitator of German-Czech National Socialism and, later on, became a member of the German Nazi Party.
Rudolf Jung was born in Plasy and went to school in Jihlava, a town fractured by national antagonisms. He was a civil engineer employed by the national railways of the Austro-Hungary. His party work took him from Vienna, to Bohemia. In 1909, he joined the German Workers Party (DAP) (later in Czechoslovakia, DNSAP) and became an ardent party agitator. Because of his party provocations, Jung was fired but his party put him on their payroll and he devoted himself to theoretical work. Along with Dr. Walter Riehl, he drafted the Jihlava party program of 1913 "which contained a more detailed comparison of international Marxism and national socialism and a more pointed attack on capitalism, Democracy, alien peoples, and Jews. Here, anti-semitism ranked behind anti-Slavism, anti-clericalism and anti-capitalism." ³ It is noted that Nazi ideology does not oppose capitalist relations or production, just the supposed excesses of capitalism. In 1919, he completed his theoretical work "Der Nationale Sozialismus." Jung expressed the hope in his introduction that his book would play the same role for national socialism that Das Kapital did for Marxian socialism. It is he that convinced Hitler to use the term "National Socialist" for the DAP's counterpart in Germany; Hitler originally wanted to rename the German DAP into the "Social Revolutionary Party".
Some of the posts and honors he held were; President of the State Labour office in area Middle Germany; Gauleiter ad Honorem (honorary); in 1936, Member of the Reichstag for the district Westfalia South. In 1943, he became the Reich Inspector and Director of the Reich Inspection of Labour Administration.
He committed the suicide in Prague's Pankrįc prison before the trial against him started.
