Hello, I just bought a copy of Night Shift with the gutter code mp6aa and I can't find anywhere what edition that is tied to. It has the first edition dust jacket, and doesn't mention any newer books in the short bio on the back flap. Would appreciate any help. Thanks.

Hello and welcome to the forums!

I'm not sure what the gutter code mp6aa signifies in terms of printing or edition, except that it's not in line with typical Doubleday gutter codes of Year (represented by letter) and week (represented by number) I do know that in order to be a true 1st/1st trade edition it needs to be an S52 on the gutter.

So unfortunately I know the book block itself isn't a true 1st. Beyond that I can't say for sure.

I don't know what mp6aa signifies either, but as the dust jacket is the largest part of the price, you should keep it if it is in good condition.
