How to parse the edition

Post

     The edition of a book comes in the line of a long piece of source code that always contains the second occurrence of "<li><b>".

     E.g.

      

     <li><b>Publisher:</b> Jossey Bass; 1st edition (25 Oct 1993)</li>
     or
          <li><b>Publisher:</b> Atlas Press; New edition edition (Feb 1992)</li>
           
          Sometimes the edition information is included. Sometimes it is not.
           
          I don't want to include the word "edition".
           
          How should I script for this?
