I didn't know where to put this question, so I put it in Meta.

For those that know this book by M. SPIVAK, which edition, 1982, 1983, 1986, 1990 does the E, Eir, Em first appear in?

Just interested :)

The question is for those that actually had (have?) the physical copies of these editions.

the use of "e", "eir", "em" was in the first draft of joy, pre-publication.

(i did much of the production work on the book, including helping to create the code for formatting the index, so i don't even have to look.)
