What is the edition of a book?
In the publishing industry, the term edition refers to the total number of copies of a publication (books, magazines or newspapers, etc.) printed according to a certain unchanged set template.
What does revised edition mean?

A 3-digit code that identifies the country of manufacture of the related EAN (European / International Article Number).
