Gone With the Wind

By Mitchell, Margaret




Margaret Mitchell only published one complete novel, but it was quite the book - Gone With the Wind earned her the Pulitzer Prize in 1937 and National Book Award for 1936. The epic romance tale set in and around Atlanta, Georgia during the American Civil War has remained a bestseller, even before the equally popular film starring Clark Gable and Vivian Leigh was made in 1939.

First edition identification and notes

The first edition, first printing of GWTW numbered only 10,000 copies, and they bore an incorrect release date of May, 1936.  These inaccurate first printings, and corrected second printing of 25,000 copies, were both actually released to the American public in June 1936.  Signed first editions are valued from $10,000-$25,000, depending on the book's condition, of course.  The true firsts with the May 1936 date also have the original publisher's price of $3.00 and a "Spring Novels" advert with Gone With the Wind as the second title down as indicators of edition.  

Other collectible or notable editions

A Book Club Edition was printed and released at the same time as the first and second printings, which causes confusion for new collectors, but they remain one of the few Book Club Editions that still have some value. One indicator of the BCE is roman numerals for 1936 (MCMXXXVI) on the copyright page.There are also many who collect the movie-related books, posters, and ephemera.  The original, unsigned typescript for the film can be found for sale for around $15,000 (all prices as of November 2013). -

New York: The Macmillan Company, 1938. Later printing. Very Good +/Very Good +. One of the copies that was circulated by the director, Victor Fleming, to give as a gift. In this case, gifted to Stan Johnson, art director at Fox Studios, and passed down through his family. Signed by the following cast and crew: Clark Gable (Rhett Butler), Vivien Leigh (Scarlett O'Hara), Olivia de Havilland (Melanie Hamilton), George Reeves (Brent Tarleton), Fred Crane (Stuart Tarleton), Laura Hope Crews (Aunt 'Pittypat' Hamilton), Jane Darwell (Mrs. Merriweather), Butterfly McQueen (Prissy), Alicia Rhett (India), Will Price (technical advisor), Richard Mueller (color consultant), and Ridgeway Callow (Assistant Director).

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. 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 years she painstakingly researched for historical accuracy. She accumulated thousands of pages of manuscript. Here is how she later described her life's labor: "When I look back on these last years of struggling to find time to write between deaths in the family, illness in the family and among friends which lasted months and even years, childbirths (not my own), divorces and neuroses among friends, my own ill health and four fine auto accidents ... it all seems like a nightmare. I wouldn't tackle it again for anything. Just as soon as I sat down to write, somebody I loved would decide to have their gall-bladder removed. ... " In 1934, an editor from Macmillan's Publishers came to Atlanta seeking new authors. He was referred to John and Margaret Marsh as people who knew Atlanta's literary scene. She steered him to several prospects, but didn't mention her own work. A friend told him that she was writing a novel, but she denied it. On the night before he was to leave Atlanta, she appeared at his hotel-room door with her still imperfect, mountainous manuscript and left it with him for better or for worse. "This is beyond doubt one of the most remarkable first novels produced by an American writer. It is also one of the best" (New York Times). Gone With the Wind is said to be the fastest selling novel in the history of American publishing (50,000 copies in a single day), and went on to win the Pulitzer Prize.

MITCHELL, Margaret

New York: Macmillan, 1936. FIRST EDITION. Original grey cloth, including original dust jacket with "Macmillan Spring Novels" printed across the top back panel and "Gone with the Wind" title printed in the second column; minor staining, minimal wear on top of dust jacket spine, but otherwise an extremely nice copy. First edition, first issue, with "Published May 1936" on copyright page. Mitchell's sole novel published during her lifetime, Gone with the wind, was renowned as the top American fiction bestseller in the year it was published. The second favorite book of American readers, it received the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the National Book Award for Most Distinguished Novel in the year of its printing. Gone with the wind depicts the charming coming-of-age tale of the young Scarlett O'Hara, the spoiled daughter of a plantation owner, using her means to escape the poverty that ravaged the South following General Sherman's damaging March to the Sea. In addition to receiving the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1937, it was adapted into a highly-acclaimed film version in 1939. Mitchell (1900-1949), initially a featured writer for the Atlanta Journal, finding her writing endeavors there unfulfilling, ventured to try her hand at composing fiction. Painstakingly written over nearly fifteen years, Mitchell reflects on her journey, explaining that "look[ing] on the past years of struggling to find time to write between deaths in the family, illness in the family and among friends which lasted months and even years, childbirths (not my own), divorces and neuroses among friends, my own ill health and four fine auto accidents … it all seems like a nightmare.".

GONE WITH THE WIND MOVIE CAST: OLIVIA de HAVILAND, BUTTERFLY McQUEEN, VICTOR JORY, ANN RUTHERFORD and EVELYN KEYES Slip cased 25th anniversary edition of Margaret Mitchell's novel, signed by five members, of the movie cast, and also by Susan Myrick, Mitchell's friend and a technical advisor to the film. Rutherford and Jory have added inscriptions to the book's owner. Book signed: ""For Bernard/Bless you for remembering/Ann Rutherford", "Olivia de Haviland", "Evelyn Keyes", "Butterfly McQueen", "To Bernard/your friend/Victor Jory" and "Susan Myrick", 954 pages, 6¼x9½. Gone with the Wind, by Margaret Mitchell. New York, The Macmillan Company, 1961. Cloth-bound 25th anniversary edition with slip case. Signed on inside front cover and flyleaf. Imprinted with the name of the book's owner, Bernard L. Solari, to whom the signatures of Rutherford and Jory are inscribed. In 1939, the epic film, Gone With The Wind, based on Margaret Mitchell's 1936 best-selling novel of the same name, broke box office records and won ten Oscars (against stiff competition). The saga of the old South remains one of the most beloved films of all time. OLIVIA de HAVILAND (b. 1916), the last surviving major star of the film, was nominated for an Oscar for her role as Melanie Wilkes. The sister of actress Joan Fontaine, de Haviland won Best Actress Academy Awards for her roles in To Each His Own (1946) and The Heiress (1949), and received two more nominations (Hold Back the Dawn,1941; and The Snake Pit, 1948). At MGM from 1937, ANNE RUTHERFORD (b. 1920) gained minor stardom as Polly Benedict in the studio's Andy Hardy series. She was allowed to display her perky comic gifts in a trio of 1940s mystery-comedies co-starring Red Skelton (Whistling in the Dark, Whistling in Dixie, Whistling in Brooklyn), and was quite appealing as Careen O'Hara in this film. She closed out her film career in 1950 to devote more time to her private life; thereafter limiting her activity to her annual appearance as Suzanne Pleshette's mother on TV's The Bob Newhart Show. EVELYN KEYES (1919-2008)received her best opportunity outside of the DeMille fold when she was cast as the eternally jilted Suellen O'Hara in this film. Some of her other notable works include Face Behind the Mask (1941), Here Comes Mr. Jordan (1941) and 1947's Mating of Millie. THELMA "BUTTERFLY" McQUEEN (1911-1995) earned her nickname in a ballet production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. She debuted on Broadway in Brown Sugar (1937), and two years later played her first and most memorable movie role, that of Prissy, the young slave in this film. After being typecast as a sobbing maid in several films of the 1940s, she grew tired of the image and retired from films in 1947, returning in the early 1970s when better roles were available. After playing passive roles under Cecil B. DeMille, VICTOR JORY (1902-1982) was U.S. Coast Guard boxing and wrestling champion. He played occasional leads, but more often character parts in films, often as a heavy. In Gone with the Wind he was cast as Jonas Wilkerson, a field overseer. Jory's other films included A Midsummer Night's Dream (1935), Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1938), Man of Conquest (1940), The Miracle Worker (1962) and Papillon (1973). He played Lamont Cranston in a serialization of The Shadow (1940). Margaret Mitchell did not want to become closely involved in production of the film. She delegated SUSAN MYRICK (1893-1978), a close personal friend and Georgia journalist, as technical advisor on the film. She saved the film from some serious gaffes, such as the cotton being picked in April.Of these signers, only de Haviland and Rutherford were still living in late 2010. BERNARD L. SOLARI had his own association with the film. He took now-famous pictures of the Loew's Grand Theatre in Atlanta, site of the movie's much ballyhooed premier, after the structure was destroyed by fire in 1978. Slip case lightly soiled and worn. Book in fine condition.

New York: Macmillan, 1936. First edition of the author's classic novel. First printing, with "Published May 1936" on the copyright page and no mention of other printings. Octavo, bound in full morocco, gilt titles to the spine, gilt ruled to the front and rear panels, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. In fine condition. 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 years she painstakingly researched for historical accuracy. She accumulated thousands of pages of manuscript. Here is how she later described her life's labor: "When I look back on these last years of struggling to find time to write between deaths in the family, illness in the family and among friends which lasted months and even years, childbirths (not my own), divorces and neuroses among friends, my own ill health and four fine auto accidents ... it all seems like a nightmare. I wouldn't tackle it again for anything. Just as soon as I sat down to write, somebody I loved would decide to have their gall-bladder removed. ... " In 1934, an editor from Macmillan's Publishers came to Atlanta seeking new authors. He was referred to John and Margaret Marsh as people who knew Atlanta's literary scene. She steered him to several prospects, but didn't mention her own work. A friend told him that she was writing a novel, but she denied it. On the night before he was to leave Atlanta, she appeared at his hotel-room door with her still imperfect, mountainous manuscript and left it with him for better or for worse. "This is beyond doubt one of the most remarkable first novels produced by an American writer. It is also one of the best" (New York Times). Gone With the Wind is said to be the fastest selling novel in the history of American publishing (50,000 copies in a single day), and went on to win the Pulitzer Prize.

Gone With The Wind

MITCHELL, MARGARET

New York: Macmillan, 1936. First Edition; first printing. A very good copy in the second printing dust jacket, which has some chips. This jacket is often erroneously referred to as the second “issue” dust jacket, which would indicate that the first printing was at some point sold with this jacket. However, this cataloguer has never seen such a copy, and assumes with considerable experience, thought, and observation that these jackets (printed only days or weeks later than the earliest one) have all been supplied from other copies by dealers and collectors.

Gone with the Wind [June Printing with Original Brick from Loew's Grand Theatre]

Mitchell, Margaret

New York: The Macmillan Company, 1936. Published June, 1936 and preserved in the extremely rare wrapper. Presented with an original brick from Loew's Grand Theatre - World Premiere Site of Gone With The Wind. Loew's Grand Theatre, originally DeGive's Grand Opera House, was a theater from 1893-1978 at the corner of Peachtree and Forsyth Streets in downtown Atlanta, Georgia and most famous for the opening of Mitchell's classic. Many epic films premiered at the opulent theatre including Ben Hur, Doctor Zhivago, and Singin' In The Rain. About 300,000 people came out for the premiere on December 15, 1939. It was the climax of three days of festivities, which included a parade of limousines featuring stars from the film, receptions, thousands of Confederate flags and a costume ball. The governor of Georgia, declared December 15 a state holiday. The estimated three hundred thousand residents and visitors to Atlanta lined the streets for up to seven miles to watch a procession of limousines bring Vivien Leigh, Olivia de Havilland, Clark Gable and others from the airport. Butternut (greyish brown) full cloth boards, navy stamped cover and spine titles, moderate cover wear, discoloration. Deckled pages very good, light toning; vintage signature at front endpaper. Bind good; hinges intact. Beautiful facsimile jacket of original first edition design - protected in new clear sleeve. Sharp, near very good example. Extremely rare printing. Original June dust wrapper, rare in any form, well worn w/crease, rub, repairs; corners clipped, protected in clear sleeve. Intact and still attractive. There were over one hundred printings of the first edition. First published in 1936, Gone with the Wind sold 50,000 copies on its first day, and two million after a year. Even though it is 1,037 pages long, readers all over the world snatched up the book; by 1937 it was awarded the Pulitzer Prize and the film rights had been sold to David O. Selznick. Mitchell prided herself on the historical accuracy of her work; and it is a sweeping account of how the Civil War tore apart an entire way of life. The stirring drama of the War Between the States and Reconstruction is brought vividly to life in this magnificent novel. Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara remain two of the most enduring characters in American fiction. Insured post.. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Fair. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Book.
