The first one is the new 2nd edition which is going to be released July 15th. The second is the 1st edition which is was released in 2004.

I am asking in general based on past experiences, no one has seen the book.

You're right, nobody has seen the new edition since it's not out yet, so no one knows for sure. Based on past FA edition changes probably wouldn't be comparable either because FA for step 1 usually changes editions each year, so from one year to the next there are not many changes. But this is only the 2nd edition being released, and it's 2 years after the 1st. I would expect more significant changes than the step 1 edition changes, but probably not critical enough to buy the new one if you already have the old one. But like I said, we won't know for sure until it comes out. Just my opinion.
