Gone With the Wind
May 31, 2011
Speaking of Civil War-related literature, fans of Margaret Mitchell’s epic novel “Gone With the Wind” celebrated the 75th anniversary of its publication earlier this month. Special Collections owns two copies of the first edition of this Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, though both lack the highly collectible dust jacket. “Gone With the Wind” was made into a movie starring Clark Gable and Vivienne Leigh in 1939; Special Collections owns the original manuscript score by Max Steiner (part of the Max Steiner Collection in the BYU Film Music Archives).
