    Arrow Has or Had, with something created in the past and still exists

    In the name of the Merciful Allah,
    Hello, when I say something about a previous edition of some book, should I use the past or the present tense of the verb that is used with the subject, which is "the last edition", in this sentence: The last edition of this book has/had many errors. Thanks ahead.
