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.
