It is a new book and a new number is assigned. A price change on the book
(even if it is just a new printing not a new edition) normally gets a new
number since the number keys back to the book and the publisher must track
the $4.95 copies separately from the $5.95 ones. A new printing without a
new price keeps the same ISBN. In some cases when a book is printed with
multiple covers, each cover sometimes gets its own ISBN number.
