I'm buying Elements, Counterexamples in Analysis, and the Works of Archimedes off of amazon. I was just wondering about the difference in these two versions of the Works of Archimedes:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

https://www.amazon.com/Works-Archimedes/dp/0486420841/ref=pd_sim_b_title_1

https://www.amazon.com/Works-Archim...=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1201913128&sr=1-3

I'm pretty sure the second is the same as the first with 155 pages of introduction by Heath. I was wondering if anyone knew whether this extra material is worth the extra $14 or would I get pretty much the same insight from just reading the first book.

Thanks, any help is appreciated.
