The fellow that listed these wasn't kidding, all four sets are in fantastic shape...

The guy also did a pretty darn good job of packaging for shipping as well to protect from crushing, which can be problematic for box sets.

MadMaligor, just a question--how big was the box that all four sets came in?  I see that shipping was listed as media mail, but in trying to imagine the box size it seems to me that the four sets would be about the size of a printer.



(BTW--great find and at a true bargain!!) :!:  :!:

I didn't mind the two sets of pictures of the same thing.  It was so nice scrolling down them twice!

Very very nice.

I had a long discourse via e-mail with the seller and I came to the conclusion that they were in awesome shape. If they weren't, I'd have felt compelled to post about it. I figured the winner would get a nice surprise.

Beautiful books, Stephen! :D

Has anyone ever performed a textual comparison between the US vs. GW UK vs. AU text, to determine if there are any differences between them?  It would also be interesting to see which printings correspond to one another, if possible (i.e., a 1st AU = 2nd US = 2nd UK, as a hypothetical example).

I don't recall any text differences, though my mind isn't what it used to be. It wasn't much to begin with.

Hi Axel!

Noble Knight has a bunch of Boot Hill stuff listed right now.
Does it include any of those extra items?

Pretty happy with this find!  I was able to replace my missing G series, and have a good start on my mod collection.  Oddly enough, I'm going to be selling the D&D pamphlets, Carse, Outlands, the Tavern pamphlet and a Gateway to Adventure.



But I ALSO found scads and scads of very detailed hex maps.  beutiful stuff!  From the writing it seems that this DM was female.  Over 20 pages of hex maps, some on Games Workshop hexpad.



Also, five aged manila envelopes full of information on various towns.



neat-O!

I don't think I've ever actually seen a Towns of the Outlands in the flesh...although it is available as a free pdf download.



All in all, a nice win.
