This is the latest and greatest, 1891 edition, printed in 1899 of the work that was for years slightly amended versions of lectures he gave in 1861 and 1863. For the first four chapters of Volume 1, you won't see huge differences--a lot more footnotes, changes in the language name from Wallachian to Roumanian, some additional examples, a few new themes of a paragraph or two in length. After Lecture 4/Chapter 4 though, the whole structure of the remaining chapters are different, and I suspect a lot of the content is very much more up-to-date. Up-to-date as of 1891, of course, but still -- he literally "threw away the stereotypes" for this edition, and re-set the whole work, and this is his last word on these lectures.
