The first thing is to check the name of the publisher - the 1st printing, and most of the reprints are by Oxford University Press. Then see whether there's a later date on the reverse of the title page. (my 1971 reprint lists reprints in 1958, 1960, 1963)

Check the size of the booklet - the first printing is roughly 25cm by 16cm. (10X6.5 in) I think later printings are smaller?
