The ISBN system was devised beginning in 1967, and books published prior to then don't have "editions" associated with them. It's very similar with movie, music and video game UPCs. It's also possible that a seller listed an item with us and didn't include an ISBN/UPC with the listing. You'll find items like this by clicking this link.
The first time I used the BH&G Cook Book was in the 70s, my mother started using it when I took a sabbatical to American Samoa. When I returned, my mother would not give my book back so I had to order another one. This one will go to my sister, who is getting married soon. This is a great first cookbook and one to use everyday.
