First Edition: July 2017 is stated on the copyright near the center of the page, and full number line 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 toward the bottom. Boards are blue with initials of Little Brown (the parent publisher) embossed on the front, and white lettering on the spine.

First issue dust jacket uses two different fonts for the numbers in the barcode area on the back panel and as a result, the font used for the number 9 near the bottom left corner of the bar code area has a more pronounced hook than the 9 found towards the top of the barcode area. The first issue dust jacket also lacks any bestseller or Pulitzer winner blurbs; and has seven review blurbs on the back by Adam Haslett, Gary Shteyngart, Karen Joy Fowler, Nell Zink, Michael Chabon, Julie Orringer, and Armistead Maupin.

Less won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
