Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) Goodreads keeps all published covers and editions. Book data pages feeding into reader book catalogs of their choice of editions versus book product pages showing only what is currently for sale.

Once you set the default edition (librarians actually cannot set for you), that's what shows on your author page, search results, etc. so readers browsing new will see just that cover. But readers who already own (or otherwise cataloged) the older edition don't have their catalogs vandalized or do have to deliberately seek out the older edition.
