The Romantic Manifesto

The Romantic Manifesto
SIGNED First Edition, PRESENTATION COPY, INSCRIBED by RAND: "To William W. Stanhope - - Cordially - Ayn Rand 12/20/74." ." In this series of essays, Ayn Rand demonstrates that art is not a luxury but a critical need for human beings, not a material need, but a need of man's rational mind, on which his material survival depends. With brilliant lucidity and ruthless logic, she validates her own esthetic theory and campaigns for an esthetic renaissance. "Will we see an esthetic Renaissance in our future? I do not know. What I do know is this: anyone who fights for the future, lives in it today." Original blue cloth (tiny stain to lower rear corner); in unrestored unclipped dust jacket (short tear and minor crease to rear panel). Provenance: William W. Stanhope (presentation inscription from the author). A highly collectible copy of a book increasingly tough to find signed. Book #vP1004. $4250. From the world's largest selection of rare, signed, and manuscript Ayn Rand in private hands. Seller Inventory # vP1004
