"First printing: September 1991" is stated on the copyright page above full number line "10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1". Boards are white with gold lettering on a red cloth spine. Dust jacket lacks any reviews. The back dust jacket panel has an excerpt from the book.

There was a first anniversary edition that was published a year after the first edition. It was signed, numbered, and limited to 5,000 copies. It had a floral pattern in the binding and was issued in a matching floral slipcase.

Scarlett was sanctioned by the estate of Margaret Mitchell as the official sequel to Gone with the Wind despite the fact that Margaret Mitchell herself refused to write a sequel and never granted rights for anyone else to do so. Margaret Mitchell's estate selected Alexandra Ripley to write the sequel. The New York Times reviewed Scarlett with this headline - "In 'Scarlet,' Only the Names Are the Same".
