a question for the book collectors/librarians here Can't Post

Aunt Dora asked a question on Main about the month the Sil came out in the US, and it led me to thinking about how I obained my first edition. I know I "pre-ordered" it because it was eagerly anticipated and arrived by mail.

But I don't remember how I ordered it.

I'm thinking now it was probably Book of the Month Club, which I had joined around that time or shortly before.

Here's my question: is there a difference between a BOTMC first edition Sil and a regular first edition Sil? The book looks exactly the same as far as I can tell from internet searches, and has no notation anywhere, inside or out, that says something like "Book of the Month Club edition".

Or maybe someone else who ordered a Sil in 1977 used BOTMC and we can share details about our books, to see if they're the same?

If no one knows, I'll gladly accept any hints on who I should ask or which reference I should consult. Thanks in advance.
