The best edition of Joy of Cooking?

Hello,

I was browsing eBay and noticed there's many different editions of The Joy of Cooking for sale. My question is which is the best edition? Should I just buy a new copy of the latest version? What is everyone's thoughts?

I know there's lots of other good cookbooks and I own a few, but I feel like I'm missing out on something by not having Joy of Cooking.
