Second State of the First Edition, First Impression.
The sheets of the First Impression appear to have been bound in at least two batches, using slightly different designs for the binding case.
The earlier first state has a solid black background, while the later second state has a white border on the top and bottom edges and on the spine.
The proportion of 1st to 2nd state copies is unknown, but observation of the copies offered for sale on the secondhand market suggests that the 1st state copies outnumber the 2nd state copies by more than 10:1.
There were seven impressions of this edition, all similar to this 2nd State:
1st Impression 1967
2nd Impression 1967
3rd Impression 1968
4th Impression 1971
5th Impression 1972
6th Impression 1973
7th Impression 1974
