If the 5th print you are asking about is the one currently described:

Fifth (Sept-Dec 1979)
Wizard logo
Cover art is of two adventurers fighting a large efreet
"ADVANCED D&D" in the angled yellow banner has been downsized, and no longer has the "D" of "ADVANCED" running off the edge of the cover
Wizard logo and "TSR Games" appears on the spine instead of TSR address.  Wizard logo on spine is smaller
ISBN now appears on spine and lower left corner of back cover
Endpapers and flyleaves are a yellow-orange color
232 numbered pages


I have one of those.
If you need any more information from that print let me know.

Howdy Mike,


Heh, well I guess I have one too, duh. I have a post-it note on it that says "4th" because I experimented with shifting the print sequence up assuming that th 4th I had was actually a 3rd Gamma. :lol:

O.K. I am going to edit that part so no one else points out that I am an idiot. :)

Good so far! Now let's see if someone can dig up a 3rd Alpha!


Futures Bright,

Paul

Hi all,

small question on this book. I'm holding a sixth alpha print based on the description on the main site. The only difference is mine has 236 numbered pages whereas the site mentions 238 numbered pages.

Page 236 is called the advanced dungeons & dragons game family and is followed by perforated reference sheet Encumbrance of standard items.

Would that be a small typo on the site or am I missing a page ?

I think it may be a small typo on the site. The last numbered page in mine is 236.

The only other thing is the very last page is a survey form. I have one dm's guide with it and one without. I can only guess someone filled out the missing one and sent it in.
