That’s the Go Seigen version from Taiwan. Before he wrote this version, the Japanese version available at the time did not have solutions for all the problems. Go Seigen has completed that task for this edition. I understand that this is the most complete version of Guanzi Pu. It seems the version by the Jiang brothers do not contain all the problems that are present in this version.

This book is based on “Weiqi Technique Encyclopedia (Guanzi Pu)” edited by Jiang Zhujiu and Jiang Mingjiu but does not include all the problems in the previous book. It follows the same format and has corrected some of the deficiencies from previous versions. (ch. 1-6)

In addition to problems from Guanzi Pu, it has been expanded to include 4 chapters of 9X9 problems for high level self-testing. (ch. 7-10)

This seems to be a fascimile copy of the original Ching Dynasty edition. The diagrams are in Chinese numerical notations. The diagrams show only the answers with about 2 to 4 problems per diagram page. Each diagram page also shows some sparse comments on the moves for the answers in top section of the page.

Also see this post for a Korean edition of Guanzi Pu.
