ANTHEM: Signed Tribute to Ayn Rand Archive
SIGNED and dated [4/10/77] by Ayn Rand and her husband, Frank O'Connor, on the night of The Ford Hall Forum's tribute to Ayn Rand. "In honoring Ayn Rand, the Ford Hall Forum does honor to itself," opens the invitation to the Forum's "Tribute to Ayn Rand -- Sheraton Boston Hotel -- Boston Mass. -- Sunday, April 10, 1977" In recognition of Rand's commanding popularity of her annual Ford Hall Forum speeches, "a gathering that has been termed the 'Objectivist Easter'" (The New York Times), the Forum invited Miss Rand and her guests to a luncheon, followed by her lecture, "Global Balkanization." One year later at the Forum, Rand delivered her lecture "Cultural Update," (VERY RARE) which, she admits "should have been delivered last year on the occasion of the beautiful luncheon the Forum gave for me." Included are this lovely SIGNED seventh printing of the First American Hardcover Edition of Anthem, a fine copy in a near-fine jacket with edgewear, SIGNED and dated by Ayn Rand and her husband, Frank O'Connor. The archive also includes the ORIGINAL invitation to the Forum luncheon tribute to Rand, with 2 admission cards reading "Guest of Ayn Rand"; first printing copies of BOTH Ayn Rand lectures, "Global Balkanization" and "Cultural Update," delivered at the Forum a year later on April 16, 1978, not reprinted anywhere. The invitation is in fine condition and rests inside the addressee's envelope. Both pamphlets, published by The Intellectual Activist, have some soiling not affecting readability.
