When doing an in-text citation of a book that has been reprinted, the format is:

(Author, date when the original material was published / date of the version you consulted)

Example: (Sartre, 1956/1992).


The format for a reference entry is:

Author Last Name, First Initial. (year). Title of Book. Location: Publisher. (date of original work).


Example: Mills, D. (2007). The Book of the Ancient World. New York: Angelico Press. (Original work published 1923)


For more information, see the APA Blog post on how to determine the publication dates of materials


When citing a multi volume work that has been published over the course of a number of years, use the date range as the publication date in both the in text citation and reference list: (Smith, 1999-2006).
