Both title page and copyright page say 1926. first edition is NOT stated, but no statements of subsequent printings should be present on the copyright page. Dust jacket is extremely rare and adds most of the value to the book. The first trade dust jacket contains the statement on the lower left front panel: "This novel has never been published in any periodical". There was an advance issue where the dust jacket does not carry this statement, but is otherwise identical to the first trade dust jacket.

Note: A printing history from the second printing indicates that the publication date for Early Autumn was October 14, 1926. It also states that second printing was made on October 5, 1926; nine days before the publication date. This does not mean that it was printed before the first edition. Rather, it simply indicates that a second printing was produced shortly after the first printing; and before the official publication date.

Early Autumn won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
