"First American Edition" is stated on the copyright page with no statement of subsequent printings. Boards are black cloth with gold lettering on front and on the spine. There are two issues of the dust jacket, and possibly two states of the first issue jacket. The first issue dust jacket has the front title in yellow letters and has so far been found on first and second printings. The second issue has white letters on the front title and has been found on printings as early as the sixth. There is also said to be a first state of the first issue jacket where the words "a novel by" appears above the author's name on the front. So far we have not been able to verify this first state.

There is also a deluxe version of the First American Edition that was limited to 350 copies. They were printed on special paper, signed by the author on a special hand-numbered page, specially bound, and issued in a slipcase.

Love in the Time of Cholera (First American) is an Oprah's Book Club selection.
