37", and below that is "First American edition, June 1999. Boards are blue with an embossed diamond pattern, and a green cloth spine. The dust jacket back has a diagonal bar code field on the left side, and the small bar code within has the number "51795".
The spine on both the book and dust jacket lack the YEAR 2 badge that was introduced later, and silver lettering is raised on the spine of the dust jacket. With the early printings there are two states of the binding that have been found on the first through the sixth printings. The first state binding lacks the YEAR 2 badge on the spine, while the second state binding has the YEAR 2 badge. There are also three states of the dust jacket that can be found on the same early printing books.
The presence of these states suggests that earlier bindings and jackets were used with the pages from later printings during the production process. The most desirable book is the first printing with the first state binding in the first state dust jacket. This item is in the category "Books & Magazines\Antiquarian & Collectible".
