Collector's note that all points are present (many sellers represent they have a 1st Printing without describing the points which indicate a true 1st printing). Full number sequence "10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 9/9 0/0 " with the notations "Printed in the U.S.A. 37" and "First American Edition, October 1999" each stated on copyright page.
