Regarding the first trade edition (not the true first printing by the Franklin Library)...there are actually two versions of this book (not including the gift edition, which was published years later).
The first, and more scarce, is the unillustrated version with 399 pages (the highest numbered page). The second version has 416 pages and contains illustrations. As the text did not change, the ISBN's are exactly the same. The one with 399 pages was preceded the 416 page version. All other first edition points remain the same. If you are looking for the more scarce version, be sure to ask how many pages the book has.

I have a copy of a first trade edition "The Lost World" but the DJ does not have a price printed on it. Does that mean anything? All other copies I've seen have the price printed on it.
