I have the most recent iterations of the ASL rules, how does 1st ed vs 2nd ed of SASL interact with these? Should I pass on a 1st ed?

Both editions interact well.
The only difference between them is the 2nd edition has more nationality charts, few more scenario's, and a handful of extra pages in chapter S to cover all the nationalities..

That's not quite true. SASL2 not only covers more nationalities, it covers more options and rules (for all nationalities) than SASL1.

Otherwise, though, either version of SASL will work fine with either edition of the ASL rules (but there's really no reason not to be using the 2nd edition rulebook -- unlike SASL, it's readily available).

At the risk of being pedantic ... no you didn't. What you said was that there were extra rules for additional nationalities -- which is true, but is not the only difference between the two editions (which is what you implied). What I said was that there are extra rules, which can be used for all nationalities. E.G., SASL2 has rules for Night scenarios, which SASL1 doesn't.

Hence my comment that your statement was "not quite true". You were 90% there, nothing to be ashamed of.
