Copyright page has full number line "1 3 5 7 9 10 8 6 4 2". Green paper boards with a gilt circular design on the front and black cloth spine with gilt lettering. Back of dust jacket has five blurbs - The New York Times Book Review, The Denver Post, San Francisco Chronicle, The Washington Post Book World, and Isabel Allende. The first issue dust jackets we have seen have the ISBN inside the bar code field blacked-out because it was incorrectly printed as "978-1-59448-950-5". The publisher then printed the correct number (978-1-59448-950-1) to the right of the bar code field. It is unclear whether any uncorrected copies were distributed.
