Fast way to choose among multiple ebook editions?

I am interested in reading Uncle Silas by JS Le Fanu.  It was published in 1865 so it's pre modern copyright laws.  There are 6 different editions ranging from .99 to 11.99.  Short of downloading samples of each edition is there any way to determine the difference in editions?  I assume it has to do with the type set or pages and not the content itself.

I did notice that the 3.99 edition is the one that contains the customer reviews.  Is there an easy way to know what I'm paying for without going to B&N to read each or download samples.

Just wondering how others handle this?
