Ballroom of the Skies has an interesting publishing history. It was released as a hardcover in 1952 and went nowhere. Instead of following up with a paperback edition, as was the norm at that time, it appeared instead in magazine form and was not heard from again until Fawcett finally released this paperback in 1968. Steve Scott has his usual excellent review here.

The cover is typical for its time: a nicely rendered anonymous picture of something that has nothing to do with the story. Every subsequent US release used the same art.

Update (10/29/2012): Added ISBNs.
