A complete run of this publication from Vol. 5 No. 1 through Vol. 10 No. 9, which was issued monthly (note that Vols. 1 to 4 are not included here and were a monthly newsletter – The Objectivist Newsletter). About half the issues are fine to near Fine with only slight wear and without mailing labels or addresses, while about half the issues are Very Good to Near Fine with light edge wear, some age yellowing, and several issues with slight creasing or bending and with addresses or mailing labels. Issue No. 6 of Vol. 10 has had the bottom third of the back panel snipped for subscription to The Ayn Rand Newsletter which followed after The Objectivist.

All issues were published in stapled wraps and are housed in vinyl, green binders, which were produced specifically for the publication (two of these are Very Good and one is Fine). Also of note: All issues contain an article by Rand; Issue No. 11 of Vol. 6 includes a short story by Rand, The Simplest Thing in the World; Issue No. 3 of Vol. 7 contains a new introduction by Rand written for the 25th Anniversary Edition of The Fountainhead; Issue No. 5 of Vol. 7 (there are two copies of this issue included here) contains Rand's condemnation of, and the ending of her association with, Nathaniel Branden; As well as the "For the Record" repudiation and condemnation of Branden and his wife by Blumenthal, Greenspan, Peikoff, and Sures. Obviously, Branden was no longer associated with the publication after this.
