"First Edition" is stated on bottom of copyright page. Price on dust jacket is $5.75 is present, but a higher price has been blacked-out, apparenly as a correction during the printing process. This may be a first edition point. Later printings have the $5.75 price without the blacked-out price, which leads us to conclude that the higher price was a mistake.

Advise and Consent won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
