Find the page at the front of the book which has this line at the bottom:
"The publisher' policy is to use ..."
The third line above this line is a row of numbers: 10 9 8 7 6 5 ...
Let the last number in this row be n.
If n is greater than 1, your printing is (n-1).
If n is 1, you have the first printing.
Otherwise you have a printing that we don't know about.
