Carrie / The Shining edition questions

So I just picked up Carrie and The Shining at a Goodwill for $2 each. They both have early edition jackets. Neither book has a price so I'm assuming BCE but they have MP gutter codes. MP6Z for Carrie and MP4Z for The Shining. I can't find an information on these except for an eBay listing for "THE RARE MP4Z EDITION!!!!!ONE11!!" which does me absolutely no good.
I'm not here looking to make a mint and I'm not a huge collector, I just picked these up cause I hadn't seen them before and I dug the jackets but since I can't find any info aside from NOT FIRST EDITIONS I'm intrigued as to where they fall in the lineage.
Any help would be much much appreciated

These are BCE gutter codes. No-one knows what they stand for, because no-one cares about BCE. These are reading copies only, and are only worth the price you paid for them.

That's what I figured, it's just infuriating when you go searching and no matter your google-fu you can't find decent info on something.

Thanks for the confirmation I appreciate it.

No Sorry needed mate, like I said I'm not here to get rich quick off these, they're cool looking versions and I'm happy having them on my shelf.
