Lot 648: Signed book: Gone With the Wind. First edition, first printing. NY: The Macmillan Company, 1936. Hardcover with second-issue dust jacket, 6 x 8.75, 1037 pages. Beautifully signed on the first free end page in fountain pen. Autographic condition: irregular overall toning to signed page, otherwise fine. Book condition: G+/VG-. When Mitchell wrote Gone With the Wind, she had no idea of the sensation it would become. It was an instant bestseller, selling over 1,000,000 copies within the first six months of its publication, and she became so overwhelmed by the countless requests that she received to autograph copies of her novel that less than a year after its publication, she vowed not to sign any more, not even for close friends or relatives. A handsome copy of this 20th-century classic, particularly elusive in uninscribed examples.Please email Erika.Rosenfeld@RRAuction.com for a complete description of the book's condition.
