Well, hopefully he'll take note of the set I have up right now and just have to have a second set. :wink:

It's the same seller as the other recent set, so I presume it's legit??

Here's one that's listed on the Acaeum site that I haven't noticed on Ebay before:



http://cgi.ebay.com/Dungeons-Dragons-Fr ... dZViewItem



French language Moldvay Basic Set ("Donjons & Dragons"), including the B2 with alternate cover art (by Jim Holloway) titled "Le Chateau Fort Aux Confins du Pays".



The set has the TSR "Angle" Logo, so it's a 2nd print of the French version:



http://www.acaeum.com/ddindexes/setpage ... icfor.html



It looks like the title page artwork for the B2 is also a replacement - it's still adventurers fighting the owlbear, but it's by Holloway instead of Roslof. There is a vague reference to this in the Acaeum listing but it's not very clear.

Just picked up a copy of the French version second print of B2 Le Chateau with the assistance of Le Rahib (Thanks a bunch!!). I sent a scan of it to the powers that be. It is the only picture in the module! Love the picture though!!



Also sent a scan of it to Mr. Holloway. He stated he was very happy to see it again after all these years!

This copy of Palace of the Vampire Queen (6th print)

http://cgi.ebay.com/Wee-Warriors-Produc ... dZViewItem



Is marked as US only. Anyway, two days after my bid (cos I am too lazy to check always) got auto-rejected, the seller (who is someone here I seem to recall) was kind enough to email me and offer to ship to Europe.  Anyway, ramble ramble, one reason I posted it here is that I assume that all his items are now available to bidders outside of the US.

Note that it exists two different prints of this module in French. One with the angled logo and one with the face logo.
http://myvyrrian.free.fr/images/ventes/IMGP0673.jpg

And they are in the 4 different prints of the french boxed set ( 2 for this edition and 2 other different prints of the last red boxed set, Acaeum list only 3) with the wonderfull grammatical mistake (the correct one is "Tous")
http://myvyrrian.free.fr/images/ventes/IMGP0675.jpg

I have to list all the differences between the last 2 prints and to send it to Acaeum with scans :roll:

I should have clarified. The scan was of the Holloway inside art. Which is different than the Roslof, of course.

I know, I just said that for collectors whose are interested in TSR french editions, to let us know that it exists 2 differents prints of french B2 and a 4th print of the red box (unlisted on Acaeum) :)

Sometimes I think that we get a bit carried away with condition/shrinkwrap etc - it's nice sometimes to see what this stuff is really for....

I agree.  There's a certain, undeniable charm in the really well-used stuff.  I guess it's got something to do with imagining all of the great hours and adventures they've been through.   :D

Heads up here...I thought this was a T1st PHB, from the photo:




** expired eBay auction **




However, after a question to the seller about whether the item shown was the actual item for sale, they admitted the pic was "downloaded from the internet", and the actual book for sale is a 6th print.



:?

Wow.  I was just trying to figure out which thread to post a warning.  He didn't seem like a 'Shady Dealer,' just someone who borrowed a picture.... :oops:  

The seller wrote:1978 is the copyright date listed in the book. Looking at the small print on the first page I see that this book is from the 6th printing in January of 1980.


Oh well. I thought I found an early Player's Handbook.  I'll keep looking.

I think the guy now needs to be put in the "Shady Dealers" thread, I do.  Here's why:  I contacted him within 15 minutes of the listing going up and I asked him about the printing and the flyleafs endpapers.  He repsonded to me shortly there after that this was a sixth printing.  So in resposne tp that I sent him this:

bclarkie wrote:Hi & thanks for the fast response. I am a bit confused now based on your response, as the photo that you have of your auction denotes a much ealier printing than a 6th. Looking at the cover, your book appears to be either a 1st, 2nd or 3rd print, so if the book that you are selling is a 6th print as you say it is, the cover should look much different than it does. So you can fully understand what I mean, please check this website to see the differences: http://www.acaeum.com/ddindexes/setpages/phb.html
The reason I bring this up is b/c the 1st thru 3rd prints typically sell for more than the later prints & if your book is a 6th print as you indicated, to save yourself some potential problems, its probably best if you change the picture that you are currently using &/or indicate clearly in your auction that the photo you are using is a "stock photo" & the fact that the book that you are selling is a different printing then the one in picture. Hope that helps & thanks again, Brian.


After taking over a full day and a hlaf to respond this is what I got in response:

I did indeed download a picture from the internet as I do not have a digital camera.

I am sorry if this caused any confusion.


Now, not only has refused to post the answer to any of the questions posed to him in the auction so folks can read it, he has also outright refused to change the picture or add to the description so people know he isn't selling an early print PHB.  At first I thought it was just an honest mistake, but now I am convinced that its being done on purpose since despite my detailed response and strong suggestion to modify the auction listing and the reasonse for it, he still hasn't done so. Frankly its starting to piss me off.  I am going to send him one more request to let people know about this auction and then its going to get ugly.

Maybe someone can explain this to me, what exactly is this seller offering - a tshirt?, Books of the gaming variety? or something more "ADULT"? 8O  :lol:  :?:

There is mention of pdf file in the description :?
