In publishing, the task of revising and preparing material in manuscript form for publication, usually performed by an editor.
Some books, particularly reference books and textbooks, are revised and then republished. The first new version is known as the revised or second edition. Subsequent revisions are numbered sequentially. The latest edition is the most current, but older editions may contain useful information deleted from later editions.
