I have this book that looks identical to the green board one above, but does not list "first edition" also, on the back board there is a logo of a borzoi books stamped on the lower inner corner. Any idea about this one?

I have a grey board "first edition" of John Herseys' HIROSHIMA,and wonder if the board came in other colors other than blue and green. The book says"first edition" on the copyright page with no references to subsequent printing.The book has the recessed title at the top of the grey board as you display,however,the dust jacket does not display the "$1.75 net" on the inside front of the dust jacket. Is this still an original first edition?
