Turabian Citation Style Guide 9th Edition: J. Edition other than the First

About Citing Books

For each type of source in this guide, the general form and specific examples will be provided for the Notes-Bibliography style options of Turabian.

This information and several of the examples were drawn from A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations (9th Edition). Numbers in parentheses refer to specific pages in the manual.

For further information, please ask your instructor or refer to the Turabian manual.

Edition other than the First

For books which have been reissued with content changes, they may be called a "revised edition" or be given an edition number depending on which revision it currently is ("second," "third," and so forth). Include the edition information for any items except those that are first editions (17.1.3). The edition information should be abbreviated (2nd ed., or rev. ed.).
