For the revised edition, each of the texts has been carefully checked and corrected, and the textual apparatus has been somewhat enlarged. There have been a small number of changes in the selection, particularly in the inscription and the charters. Additional glossary items have also been included in the book, as well as the Leningrad version of Caedmon's Hymn.
The Second Anglo-Saxon Reader is of continuing value to students of the Old English language, as it provides a reliable and accurate record of much of the material on which their work is founded.

No matter how interested you may be in language and dialects and whatnot, trying to read a scanned version of an Anglo-Saxon dictionary is just asking for trouble. Pretty much impossible to guess from the context what the odd characters and misplaced letters are actually supposed to be.
