Thanks Jeremy for explanation and tips!

"I can dig up an image of one of these if you need further clarification."

That would be great. It will be easy to show the seller this image for comparision to the item instead writing explanation.

For the trade edition, there appears to be no printing indication (only one print run) of 15,000 copies, according to Hammond/Anderson - A3aa, pp. 62-63. You should be careful not to get a book-club edition, which has the blind-stamp (a small square indentation) on the back (lower) cover, near the spine at the bottom. I can dig up an image of one of these if you need further clarification. Besides some slight differences in the gold tone of the faux-leather, there are no other differences between the trade and book club editions.

This is the same text edition as the green Collector's edition from 1973 (and still in print today) with a slightly updated forward as of 1987, and gold faux-leather instead of green.

Hi,

I will change topic subject to more precise when I will know the answer.

First, please take a look on cover in attachment.
# Hardcover
# Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Company (November 1987)
# Language: English
# ISBN-10: 0395454026
# ISBN-13: 978-0395454022

I would like to buy this edition but I can't find which edition is 1st/1st? Can you post here the photo or explain me how to check this? Is there inside standard numberline? There are on ebay a lot of copies but I have never seen seller who wrote in description that is 1st/1st.

Thank you in advance!

Edit: subject changed & book info added
