We have seen two binding variants of this edition - this one has "History of A. P. Missions, India" on the spine, and "History of A. P. Missions, India." on the front cover.
We believe this to be the true first printing of the first edition, with different spine & cover titles than the later printing and lacking the errata slip of the later printing. This copy also has a penciled "A" beneath the date on the title page.
