Hmm. I don't really know. Does it actually matter? I mean, they are
simply different physical editions, and so far as I know, the actual
text doesn't vary (and varying texts, in the abstract sense, is the
usual bone of contention), which would seem to be more important.  It
doesn't seem to matter even for citations, since everybody in the list
seems to go Book, Chapter, and verse, rather than page numbers.
