Book Club Edition
A book usually printed especially for a book club such as “The Book of the Month Club” or “The Literary Guild.”
These copies will usually have the words “Book Club Edition” printed on the bottom right corner of the front flap of the dustwrapper.
Occasionally, if the book club does not wish to do a separate edition they will have a publisher blind stamp the rear board and print a supply of dustwrappers without a price on the front flap and now without the bar code data on the rear panel.
Book Clubs are not solely an American phenomenon as there have been numerous British Book Clubs over the years.
