4.0 out of 5 stars REVIEW ABOUT DIFFERENT EDITION
Reviewed in India 🇮🇳 on September 2, 2018
THERE ARE SO MANY REVIEWS ABOUT CONTENT OF THE BOOK. HERE I AM SHARING DETAILS ABOUT DIFFERENT EDITION OF THIS BOOK.
THERE are GENERALLY 4 TYPES OF EDITION . ( PHYSICAL BOOKS )
1) MASS MARKET PAPERBACK 2) PAPERBACK 3) HARDCOVER 4) LIBRARY BINDING
THE SURPRISING PART IS THAT THE FOUNTAINHEAD HAVE 730 PAGES. AND ALL EDITION CONTAIN SAME NUMBER OF PAGES.( GENERALLY THERE IS SOME DIFFERENCE)

1) MASS MARKET PAPERBACK :- A Mass market paperback is very small size book. published by publisher too decrease the cost of production and final price. HERE THE mrp is 400 rs. for 730 pages , and because of this the quality of the book is very low . and also the main problem is FONT which is very very very small ,( because large content in very small book) . so for fountainhead i do not suggest you to buy this edition.(there are some other mass market paperback of different books are available , but font in those books are good like 'to kill a mockingbird') ISBN :- 978-0451191151

2) PAPERBACK :- paperbacks are general sized book. the size varies with publishers . but for penguin it is generally 19.6 cm long and 12.7 cm width. there are two different editions according to two different Contries. USA And UK.

first one is fountainhead published by penguin uk modern classics. i prefer this edition to purchase. because the size is large compare mass market paperback and have 19.6 cm length and 13 cm width. The font is small but compare to mass market paperback , font is good. The paper quality is also good.(not great) binding is also good. But the main thing is price. Price is great . This edition is available for 200 to 400 rs. Which is great thing because book is printed in UK. ( Indian printing is cheap)

The us edition was published by PLUME. The size is large compare to UK paperback. But the price is very high . You have to import the book. So I suggest you don't go for this Edition.

ISBN Penguin UK edition :- 978-0141188621
ISBN USA PLUME edition :- 9780452273337

3) HARDCOVER :- the Hardcovers are generally most expensive one .because of sewn binding and hard cover. The fountainhead Hardcover edition is published by Penguin USA under centennial Hardcover edition. The book is big . But contain same no. Of pages. So if you are in love with the fountainhead and want to collect it then go for this edition.for this you have to search " Ayn Rand Hardcover" on amazon.in ( otherwise you will not find this book ) this will cost you -between 1000 to 2000. You can also import this edition from Amazon.co.uk

ISBN Hardcover Edition:-978-0452286757

4) Library Binding :- These are Mass market paperback in the cloths of low quality Hard Cover. So here , soft cover of a mass market paperback is Removed and then a low quality Hard cover is attached to same mass market paperback. This is done by third party . In the case of fountainhead it is done by TURTLEBACK book. Do not go for this edition. As they are made from mass market paperback .fonts are too small. And too close.
this edition does not deserve ISBN , waste of money

In short best value for money edition is penguin uk edition.

Penguin uk edition link The Fountainhead (Penguin Modern Classics) https://www.amazon.in/dp/0141188626/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_9APJBb3V66CH6

Thank You.

6) comparison of massmarket paperback , paperback and hardcover.
7) aboslutely brilliant edition

p.s. :- the font in THE UK edition is also small, but compare to mass market paperback fonts are good. this problem is because of the content,that is the content of the book is very large, so if a publisher decides to publish this book with big fonts, the book will easily take 1100-1200 pages . and in that case , the book may become very expensive.

edit 1 :- I Purchased hardcover edition of ATLAS SHRUGGED And it is absolutely brilliant , in all aspects. ( image 6 and 7 )

there is another paperback edition of The Fountainhead. which is published in USA . have similar cover and size same as hardcover. ( ISBN for this paperback edition is 9780452286375)
