2nd Edition?

Not sure what contitutes a "2nd Edition" of a book. I have had my self-published book printed 6 times now, but this time I actually have made some massive grammer corrections and added some things. Would this constitue a "2nd Edition" here:


First unpublished printing in the United States of America March 2007
ISBN: 978-1-4243-3292-2 Composition by

As far as I understand, you may make spelling corrections and grammatical fixes (and even insert missing words), without needing a new ISBN.

Examples:

Spelling - "He went over to the tble" > "He went over to the table"
Grammar - "She reaches for the cup" > "She reached for the cup"
Missing Word - "They were in for long night" > "They were in for a long night".

However, if you add significant text, change chapters, etc., then this counts as a new edition and would require a new ISBN.
