Gone With the Wind
New York: Macmillan 1936 - First edition, first printing (May 1936). Signed by Mitchell on the front free endpaper. Publisher's gray cloth, lettered in teal. Very good, with some light toning to the spine, light rubbing to the extremities, spine shaken with minor fraying to the spine ends and a few creases, otherwise tight binding without any signs of starting, a hint of minor spotting to the top edge, a few minor creases to the bright and clean pages. Overall, a clean and presentable copy, signed by Mitchell. Gone with the Wind won Margaret Mitchell both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. Perhaps best described as a work of historical fiction, Gone with the Wind also has many of the trappings of a traditional bildungsroman and romance novel, although critics argue that it does not fully fall under the category of either genre. The novel tells of archetypal Southern belle Scarlett O'Hara as she grows from a young woman into maturity against the backdrop of the American Civil War. Like many of the early 20th century Southern writers, Mitchell portrays an idyllic image of the antebellum South. While it can be legitimately criticized for its insensitivity to the treatment of African Americans who were enslaved, Mitchell's novel demonstrates how the South was decimated by the Civil War and continued to suffer under the Northern-sanctioned Restoration. Also the basis of the 1939 Academy Award-winning movie, the conflicted love story of rebellious Scarlett and Rhett Butler remains an American classic. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
