"FIRST EDITION" is stated on the center of the copyright page with full number line "10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1" on the bottom. The first printing has misprint on p. 25, line 16 ("man-woman" instead of "madwoman"). The misprint has been observed on second and third printings and is therefore believed to be on all first printings. The back of the first issue dust jacket has 4 reviews - by Kaye Gibbons, Rick Bass, Ann Beattie and Willie Morris. A sticker with a review by John Berendt was attached to the front panel of some first issue jackets, but it is not considered an issue point because some copies had this affixed on publication day, while others did not. The Berendt review was eventually added as a fifth review to the back of dust jackets issued with books around 16th printing.

A signed limited edition of 500 copies was also issued, but the copyright page on these books specifically states "LIMITED EDITION" rather than "FIRST EDITION".

Cold Mountain won the National Book Award.

I have recently seen some discussion disputing the typo as being a TF point. I have heard that the correction was not made immediately. Has anyone seen any verification on this?

The "man-woman" typo is not a 1st printing point. I've actually seen a 2nd printing with the typo. It was definitely fixed, but not directly after the 1st printing.

Patrick,
The absence of a point of issue definitely indicates the book is not that particular edition/printing, the presence of a point increases the likelyhood that the book is that particular edition/print. So, the "mad-woman" typo is a 1st printing point (probably).

A necessary but not sufficient point.
I have a first edition, third printing with the typo.

I just checked a 1st edition, 6th printing and it has the typo as well. So would agree with this not being a point. It does have a 1st State DJ. Thanks for all of the info.
