  2. I have a hard copy Atlas Shrugged first printing Random House with the points you list EXCEPT the price is shown as $22.95 on front dust jacket, it also does not have the 10/57 code on bottom of front of dust jacket flap (does not indicate edition either). It is in fine condition. Could you give any information as to whether this is a first edition first printing?

      Probably the dust jacket was “married” from another much later printing. The book should be a First Edition if it has the points.
