The front of the dust jacket lacks references to amount of copies printed and has a large photo of the author that shows 3/4 of his face. The back of the dust jacket has a list of the "12 THINGS THIS BOOK WILL DO FOR YOU" and a photo and testimonial from Lowell Thomas with the headline "WHAT I THINK OF DALE CARNEGIE". The back dust jacket flap has the $2.00 price on the bottom, which is typical for Simon and Schuster books in the late 1930's. The text on the front dust jacket flap is identical to that of later printings with two exceptions - there is a reference in the second paragraph that was changed from "Chicago University" to "The University of Chicago", and all paragraphs except for the second were changed to bold face. These flap changes were made at some point in 1937 after the eighth printing.

Only 3,000 copies of the first printing were produced. Photos are courtesy of jdinvestments on Ebay.
