It means it's a later printing. The code Y38 designates a first edition, first printing. Price on the dust jacket for the 1st/1st was $15.95.

There's a thread on TheDarkTower.com somewhere that breaks down the code to the month and year of the printing. I can't find it right now.

My copy Has "FIRST EDITION" but Y43 on page 374. Can I assume this is a First Edition with just a later print run? Thanks.

So when people say 1st edition they really mean 1st printing of a 1st edition.

You're right this is likely a later printing of the 1st edition but in general terms it would not have the same value as a 1st printing / 1st edition with a Y38 code.

You can find a breakdown of the Doubleday codes in the FAQ page for anyone that's interested.
