 No Edition Letter?

My father, LGB illustrator William Dugan, passed away in April at the age of 92. (I was his model for "I'm An Indian Today" :-)). Cleaning out his apartment, I've inherited over 100 mostly-pre-1970 LGB's and am attempting to educate myself as to their value before selling them. (These include a couple of Little Black Sambos and some "A" editions illustrated by Harry McNaught, who was a family friend, and a first edition of The Twelve Dancing Princesses).

If there is no "c d e f...etc" on the copyright page, and no letter on the lower right corner of the final page, is it safe to conclude that a LGB is an "unstated first edition?" If not, how else can one determine the edition of a LGB with no tell-tale letter in the front or back?

The pre1970 books should all have identifying marks for the first edition. The only exception is 39 cent books which had the first edition unmarked.
