No,they are not identical.  In fact, there are significant changes between
the two.  I read them,  hated them,  and choose not to buy them.  If you
like them,  fine,  enjoy.  I don't.  I should have added IMHO to that
comment,  I guess.

"We look on the same stars,  the sky is common,  the same world surrounds
us.  What difference does it make by what pains each seeks the truth?  We
can not attain to so great a secret by one road..."
Symmachus,  "Memorial on the Occasion of the Removal of the Altar of
Victory from the Senate House" (392 AD)
