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 to Very Good condition. The cover shows heavy wear including rounded and bumped corners, edge-wear, scratches, and scuffing on the back. The original owner's name appears in pencil inside the front and the flyleaf has a scuffed spot.  The back has some discoloration and residue inside and on the flyleaf. The inside has some stray pencil, one page looks like it was closed on a bit of pencil lead, see the 6th image. One corner has been folded, and there are some small notches on the page edges on about 15 pages and the last two pages have a 1" tear near the edge. The binding is tight and it is mostly very clean and nice.

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.

I would be happy to wrap your gift purchase at no charge and write a personal note on the packing slip. Just add a note to the shopping cart at checkout.
