A Word on First Editions : 95% of my offerings are trade editions, and 90% of those are first printings. In general I do NOT sell bookclub editions or cheap reprints like Modern Library except in rare instances which would be explicitly stated as such. In general, I also DO NOT sell x-library copies. If the book is both a first edition AND a first printing , it will be marked as first edition in the Item Specifics under Special Attributes, otherwise assume a later printing or a later edition.
