Item Details

Wow. This book brings back lots of great memories. This excellent 128-page book was authored by Gary Gygax and ushered in the Advanced Dungeons and Dragons 1st Edition era. Although, for some reason, the Monster Manual was published first.

This is the first print to have the Jeff Easly wizard artwork on the cover. 


From the back of the tome:

No more searching through stacks of books and magazines to find out what you need to know. The Player's Handbook puts it all at your fingertips, including:

All recommended character classes

fighters, paladins, rangers, magic-users, etc.

Character races

dwarves, elves, gnomes, half-orcs, humans, etc.

Character level statistics

Equipment lists with costs

Spell listings by level and descriptions of effects (including many new spells!)

As a dungeon adventurer or a dungeon master, you will find the contents of this book to be what you have been waiting for. All useful material is now compiled under one cover, especially for players!


This book is in Good condition showing heavy wear and some abuse. It is sturdy, and the binding is tight. The cover shows heavy corner rounding, wear and creases at the binding, heavy scuffing, and many light scratches. There are a few indents. There is a tiny hole in the cover that goes through about 6 pages. I suspect this was caused by a compass. 

The interior shows a lot of wear in the first 20 or so pages. There are lots of discolored spots, marks, and stains. There are a few notes in pen and pencil. After that, it's not too bad at all. All of the pages show heavy edge wear, there are some folded corners, and a few pencil and pen marks. There are many small discolored spots throughout. Most pages are just fine. This book has seen some heavy and rough use but it is sturdy and intact. It would make a great playing copy!

Please Note:

Please look at the pictures and contact me if you have any questions.

Most of my packing supplies are reused, so don't be too surprised if you have a combination of paper, airbags, and whatever else I have laying around.
