RARA-AVIS: Willeford question

One thing has been bugging me for years and I thought to ask:

was the first edition of Willeford's COCKFIGHTER a paperback of hardcover? It was published by Chicago Paperback House, but they boasted in the cover
(which I've seen in scans only) that it's the world's only hardcover paperback original (or some such, I forget the exact wording). Which one is it? And what the f**k is "hardcover paperback original"?

(And how are the other books by Chicago Paperback House? They have at least one title Pauline C. Smith who had lots of stories in AHMM and EQMM.)
