New York: The Macmillan Company, 1960.
Seventieth Printing. Hardcover. 8 1/2" X 5 7/8". 1037pp. Rather heavy wear to price-clipped dust jacket, with open tears to extremities, including 2 1/2" tear at head of spine, along with creasing and light dust soiling. Brown cloth over boards, with spine backed in dark brown cloth and lettered in gilt and dark brown over silver. Mild edgewear to binding, with rubbing to spine. Dust soiling to edges of text block. Hinges a touch tender. Binding remains sound. Pages are clean and unmarked. Several newspaper clippings laid in: "Raising the Dump--House Divided: Margaret Mitchell home gets unusual makeover" from the Atlanta Constitution, dated 9-25-95, "Town owes Mitchell debt" from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, July 6th, 2009, and a Southern Living article from August 2011 in which Southern author Emily Giffin imagines where the characters of Gone with the Wind would visit in Atlanta today. An admittedly worn but solid and still handsome 1960 printing of Margaret Mitchell's Pulitzer Prize-winning and bestselling novel, the basis for the 1939 film starring Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable. Good / fair. Item #5783
