Turabian Citation Style Guide 8th Edition: J. Edition other than the First

This guide will help you cite sources in the Turabian/Chicago Style.

About Citing Books

For each type of source in this guide, the general form and specific examples will be provided for both the Notes-Bibliography and the Author-Date style options of Turabian.

This information and several of the examples were drawn from A manual for writers of research papers, theses, and dissertations (8th edition). Numbers in parentheses refer to specific pages in the manual.

For further information, please ask your instructor or refer to the Turabian manual.

Edition other than the First

For books which have been reissued with content changes, they may be called a "revised edition" or be given an edition number depending on which revision it currently is ("second," "third," and so forth). Include the edition information for any items except those that are first editions.  The edition information should be abbreviated (2nd ed., or rev. ed.).
