various editions of M + F

Salvete omnes:

I am wondering about the (two?) editions of the book. The first edition (1974, ISBN 0520027477) seems pretty pricey, as used copies appear to be going for $98.01 on Amazon. I assume it is out of print. The 1977 edition (ISBN 0520031830) is far cheaper at $14. Are there vast differences between the editions, and is one preferred to the other by most on the list?

On occasion prices go up without any particular reason. But you should have no problem with a more recent edition.

To my amazement, I found an audio version published in 2004:

Princeton, N.J. : Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic, 2004.

I actually found a 1974 edition for $6. If there is such clamoring for it, I could put it out on Amazon for a mere $50 or so, and then buy the second edition. :wink:
