Academic references when on eBook


I'm finishing an academic book and I needed to update quotations I had made previously from an older book from a specific author. There's a new edition that was just published on the subject I'm researching, that has updated text revision, and I wanted to use this text as a reference for my quotations. However, I had only access to the eBook version of the work, an Adobe Digital Editions version.

My question is: could I quote normally using the pages of the ADE edition, specifying such on the references/bibliography page, or should I use the original page numbers of the paper edition (which I don't have)? Are there any losses for the work if I decide to use the ADE edition? Are the print versions prefered over the ADE versions, or that question doesn't apply anymore in our day and age of ebook dissemination? Hope to hear any hints from you.

Thanks in advance.
