I have both, and it's true.

One says:  FIRST MODERN LIBRARY EDITION | September, 1966  in an 11  
binding with kent endpapers in  an "m" jacket (blank inverse)
The other: FIRST MODERN LIBRARY EDITION, September, 1966 in a 13  
binding with blank endpapers in an "n" jacket "Modern Fiction" (blank  
inverse)

The artwork on the front & spine of the DJ are identical.
