This is a very rare Reader's Digest. Included is a RARE article by Ayn Rand, then best known for her recent bestseller, The Fountainhead. Of course, she went on to write her masterpiece, Atlas Shrugged, but this article was her first article published in a major magazine. This three page article ("The Only Path To Tomorrow") was taken from what was to be a forthcoming book called the "Moral Basis of Individualism". This book was never finished, as she decided to devote her time to completing the work on the movie version of The Fountainhead, and concentrate on writing Atlas Shrugged. Even today, this is not an easy article to find. It is NOT a reprint, this article was ONLY published in this issue of Reader's Digest! [See photo below!]
Of course, this magazine is also full of the usual interesting articles, and writers, especially historical because this was during WWII. Here's a list of the other articles in this issue:
