I'm leaning towards the 1996 edition. But again, I'd like some feedback as to which is most preferred.

I read both of those a few years apart, and I don't remember many big differences. I read the older one as a hardback, so that was a nicer book in general. That's all I can remember. I don't think you'll go wrong with either.

Location: Trāyastriṃśa. Just kidding. What a cool sanksrit word, huh?
The old Lama Kazi one would be really interesting to read, but the newer ones are the more renowned.

Thanks Tom! I just wanted to make sure they were similar copies. Been putting off this purchase for way too long.
