    Default 1st Edition score!

    I found copies of the 1E Monster Manual (2nd printing) and the Deities & Demigods (with the Cthulhu Mythos) today for a $1 each. :) I'm selling them on Amazon. The Deities & Demigods book is like new, better shape than my copy. :)

    Heh; I paid almost the same (£1) for my copies of the PHB, DMG and OA. That is a darn good haul, though. It sounds like your copy of Deities & Demi Gods is probably worth a fair bit on the collector's market.
    It is a joyful thing indeed to hold intimate converse with a man after one’s own heart, chatting without reserve about things of interest or the fleeting topics of the world; but such, alas, are few and far between.

    I'm asking $60 for it, plus $3.99 shipping.

    That sounds about right; the Acaeum reports $52 for near mint copies.

    Hey! You said you were going to give them to me!

    Congrats on the haul! Wish I knew a place here where I could find such. FleaBay is a cruel mistress.

    Wow. I went to my semi-local favorite gaming store and bought 9 issues of Dungeon for $15, but that doesn't really compare.

    My girlfriend's mother has the original printing of first edition. When I saw it my jaw dropped from the cool nerdiness. It was just sitting on a shelf in their basement lounging room, ontop of my gf's older brother's video games, dvds and what not.

    After I got my gf into D&D, she started using the orange plastic dice with her own as 'good luck dice'.

    All of my original 1E books are within arms reach at the moment. But I bought them when they were originally released. :)

    Mine were acquired free and third hand (My parents bought them second hand, and I discovered them and was basically given them at about 8), but I am missing a couple of books.

    To the best of my knowledge I have all of the 1e hardcovers in my collection. Though after thirty years of use s few are a tad worn. I have all of the classic modules as well. Heck, I still have 1st printings of 1E Gamma World, Metamorphosis Alpha, C&C, T&T, V&V, Chill, Marvel Heroes and Star Frontiers. :) Those boxed sets are space hogs though.

    My collection covers 60' of shelving space. :)

    My first edition books are on the other side of the room, with the rest of my D&D stuff. The copy of the DMG I think of as mine (I have two, but one is the original cover, purchased for collecting and having a spare) I bought second-hand, and has been beautifully colored by the previous owner. He went through and colored all of the illustrations in colored pencil, and I can barely look at a non-colored one anymore without thinking something is wrong.
