Margaret Mitchell

This lot of items gives an insight into the minds of two people who were very influential in the 20th century: Margaret Mitchell and Henry S. Commager. This is a collection of documents.

 

This 1936 copy of Gone With The Wind is not a first edition, but was published most likely in October 1936.

 

What makes the volume particularly interesting is that an earlier owner, whose name is written in pencil on the flyleaf (shown), wrote to Margaret Mitchell and Mitchell replied.

 

Mitchell’s letter is glued into the front of the book. The letter is on Mitchell’s personal stationery and signed in ink by Mitchell herself.

 

Mitchell responds to questions the book’s owner had about the review in New York Herald Tribune’s Books section. The review, by Henry S. Commager, is included with this lot.

 

Henry Commager was a very famous and influential historian and writer. He was an active commentator and critic of several US presidents. In his review, he was critical of Gone With The Wind. Mitchell’s letter responds to these criticisms.

 

Condition of the book is fair. The cloth binding shows wear, especially on the corners. Pages are toned, especially the endpapers. The paper on the rear hinge has cracked, but the hinge remains intact.

 

Shipping via Media Mail is $4.00 including Delivery Confirmation. International buyers contact us for shipping to your country.

 

PayPal or other methods. PAYMENT IS DUE WITHIN THREE DAYS OF AUCTION END.
