It's like a book club edition, but sold commercially, rather than just to members.
I've come across several books that contain the notice that it was "Originally Published" at a given price, placed on the upper-right
corner of the front flap. No other price is listed. Does this have any significance, like being a BCE?
E.g., I have John T. Winterich, David A. Randall, A Primer of Book Collecting: Third Revised Edition (Bell Publishing 1967). Bell
Publishing was based in NY, and was a division of Crown Publishers, Inc.
The rear book flap also states "Bonanza Books" as a division of Crown Publishers, Inc. A diagonal notch in the upper-right states "Originally Published at $5.00." The bottom of the hardcover's spine has the numbers "239124," and "Bell" beneath it. There are no blinding marks on either
side of the cover. The binding is not striped, but rather appears to be glued, which has since detached and the pages are now connected to the
cover by hanging hinges.
