American editions precede the British books in all cases, UK editions noted when held by the British Library.
The books are not common in dust jacket, even the American editions which had much larger print runs are not common.
Some effective period dust jacket artwork is, as always, a bonus for book collectors.
Collectors of the UK first editon books will likely be plagued by ex-library copies which made up most of the print runs.
Readers are laughing as paperbacks are plentiful and reasonably priced.
