When It Was A Parlor

I have a copy of The Fixer with all 1st Edition points, i.e. $5.75 price, yellow top edge, copyright page, but it has a book club "dot" on the back board. So, am I to assume that the only difference between an actual 1st Edition and the book club edition is merely the dot on the back cover?

The book clubs I have seen didn't say first edition. I'll make a note on the listing.
