Actually, Theosophical University Press has *two* editions, or at
least used to have two editions. The earlier edition was typeset again,
with improved readability. It was done perhaps 10 or 20 years ago.
It no longer appears in the TUP catalog. The later edition is a
photographic facsimile of the original 1888 edition; it's what TUP
currently offers.
