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?
