(1) Shows Rb is negatively biased less than collector
(2) Shows Rb is biased above ground such that Vbe>0.6 to be active
so (2) is more general purpose
Although are Thevanin equivalents, (1) is unconventional with notation and both lack a 0V symbol. (gnd) Vcc refers to positive (Collector), Vee refers to -ve (emitter) usually gnd.
The two circuits are very similar. The only difference is your point-of-view.
In circuit 1, the "ground" reference point is at the top. In circuit 2, the "ground" reference point is at the bottom.
Circuit 2 is the one you'll see most often in circuit diagrams.
Figure (1) is the common collector circuit and the figure (2) is common emitter circuit which is employed widely among the three types of transistor configuration. Both of them above lacks a ground (0V) connection in it. That textbook has mentioned it incorrectly.
The common collector configuration is similar to that of the common emitter configuration, with the expectation that the load resistance is in the emitter circuit rather than in the collector circuit and the output is taken from emitter lead instead of the collector.
Here is the common emitter configuration
