[Mitchell, Margaret] Young, Stark (ed.). Southern Treasury of Life and Literature, Inscribed by Margaret Mitchell. New York: Charles Scribner’s Sons, 1937. Publisher’s green cloth with jacket (toned and chipped). Thick 8vo. Very good. Boldly inscribed and signed on the flyleaf by Margaret Mitchell to famed movie producer David Selznick. It was two years after this volume was published that Gone with the Wind was finally released, and this book is perhaps the only documented exchange between Mitchell and the producer of the film, David Selznick. Mitchell’s inscription reads, “To David Selznick/from Margaret Mitchell/(see page 350).” The last line is a reference to the essay “The English Language in the South.” It seems a certainty, then, that the content of this volume and the essay suggested by Mitchell played at least some small part the adaptation of her book and the shaping of the language and racial politics it embodied, into one of the greatest films of all time.
