New York: The Century Co., 1905. 8vo. [iv], 384 pp. FIRST EDITION. Original blue publisher’s cloth, covers and spine lightly rubbed, a bit shaken. Ownership inscription to fly-leaf. Item #11762
First edition of what Mitchell considered to be his best work. Apparently, he re-wrote the novel three times after the manuscript was first put into type so that the type had to be entirely re-set before the work was ever printed. BAL, 6, 14228; BMC, XVII, 520.
