I would suggest seeing if the library can get a borrow a copy of the 2nd edition from another library so you can compare them directly. Things have changed a great deal since the first edition and the second edition reflects that. There is new material and an overall modernization. An abbreviated list of changes from the preface is: vector orientation is replaced with raster orientation; SGP replaced with SRGP and SPHIGS; User Interfaces; Nurbs; Increased coverage of rengering; advanced raster graphics architectures and algorithms; and a brief introduction to animation.
