Scarlett Turns 75

 
... in print anyway.  Fascinating more for the iconic place this book has achieved in American literature than for the story itself.  I didn't know there was a Southern Cross edition in Morocco binding.

  1. I still have a 1936 printing of the book but have yet to read it ~ with my diminishing eyesight, I better get started soon!

  2. I think it is best to look for a buyer. Probably fetch a pretty handsome sum if it is a first printing,

  3. $7,500! Wow ~ too bad mine is from the third printing that year, is not signed, and has cracks on the books cover. It probably would fetch a few samolians - I'll check with ebay or something like them ...
