Hi Chuck.

That title has been reported in an m(1) dj and an 11 binding. (http://www.modernlib.com/authors/support/notes/noteBuilder.pl?tn=375.1&url=notesHeller.html). So ... no.

I have Heller's "Catch-22" (375) in a #14 binding (black cover with blue Fujita endpapers) with an o5 dustjacket.  It has a first edition statement "First Modern Library Edition, September 1966."  According to The Guide, #14 bindings were in use from 1969-70.  Maybe it is a case where the first edition plate was not removed.  I got it from Joe Hill, so it seems like he would have caught that.  My "Catch-22" in a #13 binding (in use 1967-68) with n dustjacket is not a first edition.  Chances are I missed something, just wondering if the #14 binding "Catch-22" is an actual first.
