East of Eden book binding

I recently found a copy of East of Eden in which the copyright page states
"Copyright 1952 by John Steinbeck
First Published by the Viking Press in September 1952
Published on the same day by The Macmillan Company of Canada Limited"
at the bottom of the page is the Viking logo and Printed in U>S>A.

The Title page states 1952.
My dilemma is the binding, it is with green paper Hardboards, and a whit cloth spine extending 1 1/3 inches onto front and back boards
the Spine Title is Bold Black lettering
Steinbeck at top, 1/2 inch lettering of title East OF Eden
and Viking at the bottom.

Is this a reprint or what??
