A textbook is an edited book in print, generally in an edition other than the first. The following is an example of how you cite a textbook in APA:

Lopate, P. (Ed.). (2007). The art of personal essay (2nd. ed.). New York, NY: Doubleday.

The same textbook, cited in MLA is:

Lopate, Philip, editor. The Art of the Personal Essay. 2nd ed., Doubleday, 2013.

For additional citation information, see the APA Citation page and the MLA Citation page.
