Clarification - no need to cite 1st ed right?

I just wanted to double check that there is no need to cite the first edition (even if there are multiple editions) right? 

If there are multiple editions and one is using the first edition, how does one cite this?

Hi Charlie,

You are correct, if your book is the first edition you don't need to mention that in your reference. This is true even if you are using the first edition of something that was subsequently published again.
