Weird copy of the fountainhead, wondering about value.

Recommended Posts

(I hope this is the right place to post this).

Recently, I found a copy of the fountainhead in a local library with a cover that I haven't seen before. The cover was a picture of Roark with a picture of a woman(presumably Domanique) on the spine. I believe the book indicated that the cover was illustrated by Frank O'Connor. I can gather more details such as the copyright date listed if this is of possible use.

Thanks in advance for any help; I'm just curious if the book has meaningful historical value that would make it worth my time to try and acquire it through some sort of book trade with the library.

I've seen a copy of the cover of a paperback edition from the 1950s that fits this description. In good condition it might have collector value.

The 1968 hardbound had a painting by O'Connor on its jacket cover. It shows a cityscape, with the frame of a highrise, against the rising sun.

This is not the edition that O'Connor illustrated. His painting is the third of the four customer images below the photo in the Amazon link above. If you click to see all six, it's the second: http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/product-gallery/B000E8DBWW/ref=cm_ciu_pdp_images_1?ie=UTF8&index=1.
