  • Quantity available: 1
New York: Macmillan, 1936. First edition. Fine/Fine. First printing, May 1936, in first issue jacket. A Fine copy, signed by the author on the front end paper. The book is just about perfect with a bright yellow topstain, square binding and tight hinges, completely unread. Very slight discoloration to the cloth, mostly at the spine. Fine dust jacket is bright and unworn with only the slightest wear at the corners and base of the spine. Price clipped from lower corner of front flap and one 1/4 inch closed tear on the rear panel. Both book and jacket completely untouched by any repair or restoration. A spectacular copy complete with the author's distinctive signature. The last comparable copy we can recall was the Bruce Kahn copy (offered for $55,000 in 2009). The basis for the critically acclaimed, 1939 film starring Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh. Mitchell managed to create a book that is both an engaging romance (without being sentimental) as well as a sympathetic portrayal of the devastation to ... Read more

n.p., 1936. 8vo.. "Her signature, ""Margaret Mitchell,"" accomplished on the front blank endpaper of her landmark novel, Gone With the Wind (New York: The MacMillan Company, 1936), 8vo., 1037 pp. First Edition, bound in gray cloth with titled boards and spine stamped in blue together with a facsimile dust jacket. Negligible wear absent of all the usual flaws that plague this popular and voraciously read novel.The novel's release, originally scheduled for May, was delayed until June pending a decision from the Book of the Month Club as to when they planned to include it in their offerings. Before the decision had been finalized, 10,000 copies had been printed with the erroneous May release notice. (The second issue notes a June 1936 release.)For publicity purposes, Macmillan requested that Mitchell sign a stack of blank sheets that would be inserted as endpapers when the book went to press. Over the course of five days in late March 1936, Mitchell signed 750 of these to be include ... Read more

Gone With the Wind.

Mitchell, Margaret

  • Quantity available: 1
New York: Macmillan, 1936. First edition of the author's classic novel. Octavo, original gray cloth. Signed by Margaret Mitchell on the front free end paper. First printing, with "Published May 1936" on the copyright page and no mention of other printings. First issue dust jacket, with Gone with the Wind listed in the second column of the booklist on the back panel, with $3.00 cost on the front flap. Near fine in the original dust jacket with some light professional restoration to the extremities. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A very nice example. In 1923, Margaret Mitchell became a feature writer for the Atlanta Journal, and in 1925, married John Marsh, a public relations officer for Georgia Power. She found most of her assignments unfulfilling, and she soon left to try writing fiction more to her own taste. Her own harshest critic, she would not try to get her work published. She began to write Gone with the Wind in 1926, while recovering from an automobile accident. Over the next eight ye ... Read more

Two leaves of hotel stationery, each 7-1/2 by 10-1/2 inches, writing on rectos only. $11,000.Very rare autograph letter signed from Margaret Mitchell to Harold Latham, who had famously discovered her and her book, about traveling incognito and possibly meeting. Written seven months before the Gone With the Wind premiere.Harold S. Latham, an editor at Macmillan, famously pried the manuscript of Gone With the Wind away from Mitchell on a visit to Atlanta in 1935. On a tour of the South to find new writers, Latham received reports that Mitchell had a manuscript, a fact she repeatedly denied. Then she admitted that although there was a manuscript, it was unfinished. Finally, on the eve of Latham's departure, Mitchell showed up at his hotel with the entire manuscript—a pile of papers so large Latham needed to buy an extra suitcase to be able to carry it with him on the train. Although she regretted the action immediate ... Read more

It all started when Selznick at last announced Miss Vivien Leigh and things are just now quieting down." She then goes on to ponder an invitation to Long Beach, New York. On page two she comments on that year’s Pulitzer Prize-winner: "Of course, you know about Marjorie Rawlings getting the Pulitzer award. There never was much doubt that she would get it if there was any justice anywhere.I do not know whether the award will keep her too busy to make this trip. The members of the Atlanta Women’s Press Club have asked me to give a party for her should she come, as they are all anxious to meet her." Mitchell closes with mention of the book which made her famous: "I was interested in your remarks about finding a GWTW mention in an article written by a Chinese. I did not see the article and i ...

In a one-page letter dated March 3 1937, Mitchell writes Lewis B. Traver of the American Booksellers Association, thanking him for the paperweight award (”Mr. George Brett [of her publishing house, Macmillan] has forwarded to me...) and noting that “...the trophy will never be used for any such utilitarian purpose as that of holding down papers...[I’ve] placed it under the framed record of my Grandfather Mitchell’s services in the Confederate army...” Signed in ink “Margaret Mitchell.” The second letter, dated March 11, 1937, two pages, over 500 words of exceptional content. While declining to attend the Association’s banquet primarily because she expected “...the moving picture people to come here to Georgia around that date. I hasten to disclaim any connection with the forthcoming movie production of “Gone with The Wind,” as I sold the book outright and am not working on the film in any capacity...While I have nothing to do with the casting, costuming et cetera, of course I have a wa ...

MITCHELL, Margaret (1900 - 1949)

  • Quantity available: 1
Atlanta, 1937. unbound. 1 page, 11 x 7.25 inches, Atlanta, June 29, 1937. Rare letter signed "Margaret Mitchell Marsh," declining an invitation to a party because it conflicts with her wedding anniversary, in full: "Dear Miss Hall: Sue Myrick forwarded to me your invitation, and John and I appreciate it so very much. I know the party will be lots of fun and I only wish we could come, but Sunday is our wedding anniversary and we have already made plans to spend it with friends. I admit that the temptation to break this engagement is strong, because I liked Milledgeville so much when I was there at the Press meeting. And also, I would love to attend your party as Prissy. (That is the only role my size would warrant. The costume would be cheap, too --just a croker sack and ten cents' worth of shoe polish. We do appreciate your invitation so much, and I shall look forward to Sue's description of the party." Two horizontal folds and slight foxing; very good condition.
