I have an edition nearly identical with these 3 exceptions: blue cover is shinier- to wipe clean?- and spine lettering is in dark blue; the copyright page is identical except for no "A", otherwise, Scribners logo is the same; finally, title page states 1952 instead of 1951. The color may be slightly grayer or lighter, similar to descriptions of the 1952 UK edition by Collins, but it is Scribner's and has no dj. I don't know all the book nomenclature, so I may be missing something. From what I have learned it appears to be a 1st edition with the exceptions noted. I have looked for one like it at Abe's but no exact match found. Is this a 1st ed or 2nd? or just a 1st ed 2nd printing? Maybe a library edition? Please help and reply to retrorelics(nospamplease)@earthlink.net

Followup- Noticed a single star as part of the printing to the upper left of the spine. Does that mean anything? After rereading your points I am wondering if I have a Scribner's UK 1st edition from 1952 even though all the others found were printed by Collins.
Do not know if there is an 'extra page for signing or not, so am adding these notes: The photo of the cover boards shown here appears dark blue on my browser, not black. The book I have is blue w dk blue letters. Inside the front cover is a heavy paper, then a thin paper, like the other pages. After that is a page with just the title in block caps with the quote by Emerson verso. Next is the Title Page exactly the same, except it states 1952, with the copyright page verso, exactly the same, but with no "A". What does one make of the differences? Any help is appreciated please reply retrorelics(NOSPAM)@earthlink.net Note: just remove the 'no spam' to reply- thanks.
