Mitchell, Margaret

  • Quantity available: 1
New York: The Macmillan Company, 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.

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 n ... Read more

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 ...

Typed Letter Signed on personal stationery

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.

Two letters signed in full by Margaret Mitchell, author on the classic Gone With the Wind. Both letters addressed to Rear Admiral Edward J. Marquart and his wife, one dated December 26, 1941, the other December 19, 1942, each with their original envelopes; both letters refer to the commissioning of the U.S.S. Atlanta. The U.S.S. Atlanta was commissioned at the New York Navy Yard in Brooklyn on 24 December 1941. In the second letter, Mitchell says, in part, "My trip through the Navy Yard was a heartening affair and, during this past year when I have sometimes heard people talking in depressed fashion of how far behind the enemy America's production is, I have risen up and stated, 'If you could have seen what I saw at Brooklyn you would have no fears for our future victory."

Atlanta, 1954. unbound. 2 pages on "Margaret Mitchell Marsh Estate letterhead," 10.25 x 7.25 inches, Atlanta, June 11, 1954. This important and strongly-stated letter was written by Margaret Mitchell's brother, Stephens Mitchell, to the editor of "Look Magazine" to dispel a printed rumor that Mitchell had help in researching her wildly popular novel, "Gone with the Wind," in part: "...ever since the sudden success of 'Gone With the Wind,' the rumor has arisen that this or that person wrote the book, or helped with the writing or research. These rumors included even me, and Mrs. Marsh's husband...I -- and no one else, except her husband -- ever saw "Gone With the Wind" until it was in its final typescript...and no one else has any right to claim any part of it..." Natural folds; staple holes in the upper left corners, but still in very good condition.
