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:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/0486420841/?tag=pfamazon01-20
https://www.amazon.com/dp/1402171315/?tag=pfamazon01-20

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.
