Post by miserywilkes » Fri Feb 21, 2014 6:10 am

Here's the description at the TDT.org site:

I have a feeling that the blue covers are a later printing. Just guessing, though.

i thought that too, but there is no number line or additional printings. i've never come across a book club of this book do you know what the boards are like on it?

Sorry, no. I know there was no number line with this edition, but that's about it.

Those BCE are a real pain. I bought the one I am showing when I was young & dumb. Both the BC and 1st have black cover boards. Check out the two CP pages, these are different. I am not 100% sure I would think the no price DJ confirms.

Do both yours have the same addresses?

I'm sure the one without the price on the dust jacket is BOMC.
