I have a copy that stated first edition and has all the points above EXCEPT the price on front DJ flap and ISBN on back DJ flap. Everything else is the same. Is my copy a first edition???

The lack of price and ISBN suggests that it is a book club edition. Is there a small mark or depression on the back bottom corner of the book? near the spine.

Yes there is a small square depression by the bottom corner. Glad I only paid $1 for it! Thanks for answering my question. Does the identation and lack of price usually indicate a book club book?? Sent from my iPhone

Lack of price and indentation *usually* indicates a book club edition. There are exceptions. The true first of Hunt for Red October lacks a price (so does the book club). Also, there are Borzoi logo indentations on many Alfred A. Knopf books that people sometimes mistake for book club indentations. Inversely, there are book club editions that lack the indentation and that have prices. The only definitives is that there are no definitives.

So, my book fits all the points (there is also a number in the gutter on author's page), but the DJ has the correct price on the lower right corner of the inside flap, rather than the top right; everything else about the DJ is identical to yours right down to photo credit on the back and isbn number inside flap. Any thoughts on that? thanks, R
