Just wondering if Christine also needs the 625 Madison address on the copyright page for it to be a 1st printing....?

A good question (anytime you hear that it means someone dosen't know the answer lol )

I took my copy off the shelf, which I bought waaay back when I was a kid. Sold as a 1st edition and still has the $40 price I paid for it in pencil. Looking at the CP my address is 40 West 23rd St

SK's site, which has the "how to tell 1st edition's" PDF doesn't make a distinction

Of course that doesn't mean the PDF is without error or that the bookstore I bought it from was wrong, those early Vikings can be tricky. I'd love to have someone confirm this.

Hmmm, well I guess if we could figure out when Viking moved from 625 Madison... AND if that move was to 40 West 23rd..... hmmm.

I've found his information to be very accurate. I haven't been able to check my copy right now, but I'm sure the above is correct.
