The true first edition dust jacket has "A Book-of-the-Month Club Selection" across the bottom. This blurb causes some confusion. It does NOT mean that the book or jacket is a book club edition. Rather it just means that the Book-of-the-Month Club planned to make a book club edition at the time the first edition was published, and the publisher was advertising that fact. Later printing dust jackets do not have the book-of-the-month club blurb.
