First Edition Points and Criteria for The New Centurions

Year Published: 1970
Author Last Name: Wambaugh
Author First Name: Joseph
Publisher: Little, Brown and Company
Original Price: $6.95
Pages: 376

The first edition points are as follows: FIRST EDITION is stated on the copyright page. The dust jacket lacks any mention of Book of the Month Selection. Author bio on the back of the dust jacket contains the description "half-Mexican". This was removed in later printings.

Note: The book club edition is nearly identical to the true first edition. Like the true first, the book club edition has the same $6.95 price on the dust jacket and may state FIRST EDITION on the copyright page. But the book club dust jacket has a "Book of the Month Selection" statement to the left of the $6.95 price, while the true first dust jacket lacks any book club statement altogether. The book club edition also has a small square or round blindstamp on the lower right corner of the rear boards (near the spine). The Little Brown publisherís blindstamp found on the lower left side of rear boards on true first editions (and some book club editions) should not be confused with the book club blindstamp. The Little Brown stamp is much larger and in no way indicates that a book is a book club edition.
