Dianetics L RON HUBBARD Stated First Edition Therapy Handbook Scientology 1950

This book is in VG condition - the pages are free of writing, the hinges are good, the book is sturdy with tanning to the page's fore-edges as much as I can criticize.
The DJ has tanning - has a small hole along back spine and there is shelf-wear, rubbing, with 5 or 6 small nicks along edges. I can't brag about the DJ's condition unless I stop to think that it is 65 years old.
The copyright page states "First Edition" but I have seen this copy also sold as a first printing. The sellers seem to point to the original price of $4.00 on the front flyleaf as proof of such a book being a 1st printing. If you are a collector, I am sure you know these factors better than I do. I can't vouch for it being a first printing.
