The dust jacket from the reprint edition (on the left) is similar to that of the true first (on the right). However the title tends to have a bolder gold color on the reprint, and that might be due to less aging.
The reprint edition (on the left) has a bar code on the back of the dust jacket. The true first has no bar code.
Reprint boards (on the bottom) tend to have different colors and are of better quality than the true first edition boards (on the top).
