About This Item

New York: Macmillan, 1936. 1st Edition. Leather bound. First printing with May 1936 on copyright page. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. Mitchell has signed this work on the front endpaper. This book has been finely rebound in deluxe full green morocco leather. Covers are paneled in gilt; spine ornately decorated with gilt motifs and fine raised bands; all edges gilt; marbled endpapers. The cloth from the original boards is bound in at the rear. Fine condition with only one barely noticable touch of rubbing to the back cover. Text clean and unmarked, binding firm and tight. THE RARE TRUE FIRST EDITION OF THE DEFINITIVE NOVEL OF THE CIVIL WAR. The original first printing from May 1936 was published in a small number; no one expected the book to become one of the best-selling and most beloved works in American literature. Signed copies are especially rare as Mitchell refused to sign copies once the book became popular. A SPLENDED EXAMPLE OF THIS CLASSIC NOVEL, SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR IN A GORGEOUS LEATHER BINDING.

Synopsis

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.

Gone with the Wind belongs to that finite group of books one can confidently call seminal.This novel traces, with heart wrenching passages and beautifully set scenes, the death of the "Old South". The horror and cruelty of war is adroitly used to contrast with the slow beauty of the South as it was, and which it can never be again. If a person has not read this book, their Education is incomplete.

I approached this book with trepidation. Would this be a book that glorified slavery and antebellum life? No, quite the contrary, although it provides rich description of the wealthy class before the Civil War.This book has an excellent story, well told, in which the characters are the symbols of their country. Scarlett is the United States, at first content and lazy with slavery, then hardened by war, and she shifts to be ruthlessly concerned with commerce and moving forward. Ashley is beautiful and pale, and represents the old south, which cannot adapt.You won't find better character development anywhere. This book is extremely well-written. Do yourself a favor and but a nice dusty one, so you can have that authentic feeling.This book is hugely feminist. It also tells a huge story, but is fast-paced, and will keep you locked in to the life of Scarlett.This is a significant book in American literature, but it is not dry. This book is a must-read.Abbey Rheinhartt.

This is my favorite book of all time. The characters are incredibly well written, as is the story line. Highly recommend reading. The copy I got from Biblio.com was in great condition even though it was used. I definitely plan on buying from them again.
