The Gift: Imagination and the Erotic Life of Property was published in 1983 in a hardbound edition from Random House and a paperback edition from Vintage Books. In December of 2007, Vintage issued the twenty-fifth anniversary edition with a new preface, a new afterword, a new design, and a new subtitle: Creativity and the Artist in the Modern World.

In 2006 Canongate Books of Edinburgh, Scotland brought out an edition for the United Kingdom. (There was also a 1999 Vintage U.K. edition, now out of print.) The Canongate edition bears the title The Gift: How the Creative Spirit Transforms the World.
