Referencing a quote from updated edition that was also in original edition.

How do I reference a quote from a book which is an updated edition. I believe the only text different in the book from the previous edition is in the updated introduction and so I am in essence quoting the first book. I thought it is desirable to reference the earliest version of the quoted idea?

Hi Christine

Reference the edition of the book from which you got the quote.
