Although this would later become the 4th volume in the Sandman reprint series, this book is the first hardcover Sandman collection that was published. It was not published with a dust jacket. The Science Fiction Book Club offered this as a selection which is an exact facsimile of the regular edition but with the notice "Second Printing. Book Club Edition." near the bottom of the indicia page.
Numbered volume 4 with the second DC printing as part of The Sandman Library.
