I've had a copy of this book since it was first published (or shortly after that) in 1996. I don't remember where I got it, although I do know that it was new when I got it. But my question is, what edition is it?

The info/number line on the copyright page is identical to what a first edition should be, but there are two differences with the book/dust jacket that make me think it might be a BCE. First, there is no price printed on the front inside flap of the dust jacket. But the code "0996" is there. Secondly, the paste-downs in the front and rear of the book are white/off-white instead of red.

So other than the lack of a price on the dust jacket and different color paste-downs, everything else indicates a first edition.
Any thoughts??
Thanks!

Sounds like a BCE to me. A lot of the BCE used the 1st edition page blocks until they ran out of them. You will find lots of BCEs with identical page blocks as the 1sts, but the pastedown and boards are not the same. That's how you tell them apart.
