How many times does “We” appear in the Big Book?

How many "we"s are there in the first, second, third and fourth editions?
Between page 1 and 164, the word "we" appears 1,102 times in the current edition of the book "Alcoholics Anonymous The Story of How Many Thousands of Men and Women Have Recovered From Alcoholism". It appears many other times in the front material and in the stories and appendices at the back of the book which is commonly known as "Alcoholics Anonymous" or "The Big Book".

There may be small variations in other editions but we can't think of a reason it makes a material difference.
