First Edition is stated below Random House number line "24689753" AND there is no book club dot on the back boards. Boards are blue/purple with silver lettering on a navy blue spine. The ISBN is present on the lower right corner of the dust jacket back panel.

Note: while the book club dust jacket can easily be identified by lack of price and lack of ISBN, the book itself states first edition with the same number line. The only difference between the true first edition book and the book club edition book is a small embossed dot on the back of the book club boards near the spine (see photo).
