1961 edition of Gone with the Wind novel

An edition of Margaret Mitchell's Gone with the Wind featuring a sleeve cover advertising the 1939 Technicolor film adaptation with iconic colour imagery of Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh as Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara.

The reverse features a black and white image of Rhett and Scarlett with sub-headings declaring the book 'The most popular American novel ever written'.
