Personally, I think that there shouldn't be a "second edition" of a
"limited edition".

The idea with a limited edition is that it is "limited" and that is
partly what makes your customers feel pleased, along with the choice or
art, fine papers, fine binding etc. If you feel a need to print a second
edition you probably shouldn't have offered it to the market as a
limited edition, or printed a larger limited edition in the first place.
It is my view that a "limited edition" and a "second edition" of the same
are two concepts that can not co-exist in harmony.

Just my two cents.
