    • Catalog number "1" on front cover, base of spine, and title page.
    • According to information in the 9th printing, there were five Avon printings from 1942-1945, presumably shared between this publication and Avon's pb-size publication #26. The latest advertised release of Avon's "pocket-size" books on the inside back cover is #18. In addition, the outside back cover advertises #2 in the "Avon Murder Mystery Monthly" series as "ready next month." So this is likely the 1st overall printing by Avon, and the 1st printing under this catalog number.
