Gone With The Wind - Margaret Mitchell - 1954 Garden City Books Edition
Scarlett O'Hara was not beautiful, but men seldom realized it when caught by her charm...
And so begins the story of one of the most dynamic heroines in all of 20th-century literature. Originally published in 1936, Gone With the Wind sold over 1 million copies in its first year of release and more than 75,000 per year since then. Even though it's had its critics throughout its 90 years of life, one thing that is consistently lauded is the novel's highly researched history.
For readers who are new to the book, it will capture your interest from page one with the story of Scarlett O'Hara as she ages from 16 to 28 in the American South before, during and after the Civil War. For seasoned fans who know the story well, you'll love this 1954 edition for its two-column layout, pretty spine and well-loved condition.

In well loved vintage condition. This book bears some chippiness to the spine and edges of coverboard. The back coverboard is pulling away from the spine exposing the cloth binding (please see photos) but the book itself is completely intact. There are some slight strains on a few random pages (nothing that affects the readability of the story). Previous owner's name and 1956 date written in pen on the inside endpaper.
