16th cent. From Medieval Latin editionem, accusative of editio "publication." From Latin edere "to publish," but originally meaning "to produce."The word edere is composed of two parts. The first part, e-, is from the prefix ex- "out" (see ex-). The second, -dere, is a relict of the Proto-Indo-European root *dheh1- "to put." Normally *dh- became f- in Latin, but the presence of the prefix e- prevented the change from happening. Cf. hacer, which came from *dheh1- without the prefix.
