Yes, even the pre-production photo appears to be in "color":

B2pre

However, it might be fun for someone here to design a "what if" mock-up of a mono B2 cover?
Perhaps use the Roslof Owlbear from the title page as the illustration...

It also has a single sheet of paper "What The Dungeons & Dragons Game Is All About" by E. Gary Gygax. Does anyone know if this is the one described as:

"Incidentally, a small note on page 2 informs retailers that the "What Dungeons & Dragons Is All About" section was also separately available (presumably to be passed out to customers).  (Thanks to Michael Bivens, Leonard Riotto, and Rhea Shelley for this info)."

I think that's a good price for the lot (especially with the extra unlisted sheet). I had it on my watch list and almost posted it here, but instead I told another member about it who was looking for one. At end it was going low so I considered bidding, but I decided otherwise based on the condition.

That's interesting! I haven't seen that before, so I can't provide any confirmation, but I would guess you are correct. Perhaps you can give a scan to Foulfoot for the Acaeum page.

Yes, I am quite happy to have gotten that for that cheap. :D I was only really after the 1st print MM, but everything else was just a big bonus.
