      The less common second edition. According to Gilson, the publishing history is rather furtive ("The size of the edition is not known"). It does differ from the first edition in that it is entirely reset, resulting in occasional variations within the page. In addition, there are numerous small changes to spelling and punctuation and, occasionally, a change in wording (see Gilson A4 for list of alterations.); Chapman 4.
