Yes, a wife can be a great book scout. Years ago, my wife found me a F/F copy of 4.4 at a flea market for my collection, it's the only copy I have ever seen, she gave it to me for Christmas.
My copy of the Auden is the same as yours.

I remember back a year or so a thread discussing whether or not the first
printing of the 2nd edition of Auden's poems (160.2) had an ISBN number or
not. I don't remember whether anyone actually had a 160.2 sans ISBN.
My wife just found me a copy of the 1st Edition (160.1) that HAS an ISBN
number. It's a #13 binding with blank endpapers and red cloth cover. The
DJ has the older style running torchbearer, with the l' back. I wonder--is
this the last printing of the first edition, or some later DJs printed to
clear out an inventory of the first edition?
An additional curiosity is that this copy of 160.1 has the same ISBN number
as 160.2. I would think that, with 60 additional pages, they would need
different ISBN numbers.
Anyone else have this late 160.1, or any thoughts on this matter?
