I was just wondering if and where I can buy classical editions of certain textbooks.

eg. I want to get George B. Thomas's Calculus, but I want the classical 2nd edition.

Amazon only has the latest edition(s), and I don't want those.

There are booksellers who specialize in old, out-of-print books. Usually (for obvious reasons) they tend to cater to the collectors of  books, not people who want old used textbooks. You might also try to search for libraries that are de-acquisitioning out-dated texts to see what they have for sale.
