I have an old edition of this. (It doesn't say when it was printed but I'm thinking sometime in the 40's or 50's. From the introduction I believe that this is a reprint of the 1851 edition, so that explains some of the oddities.) The problem that I found in using this edition is that many of the words in the older edition are very unusual or are outdated. Just to pick a random word from a random page: seiatherical - belonging to a sun dial. And another: Shough - a shaggy dog. I am assuming that the revised edition removes many of these oddities.
This revised edition is probably more useful than older editions. On the other hand older editions start at 4$ for a used copy. So you are paying 10 times as much for the revision. You will have to pick through a lot of anachronisms to use an older copy. You may like this if you are into language history or you may beat your head against the wall.
