Here's a question concerning DMGR4 Monster Mythology (TSR2128) -  I've had several copies of this and all of them had the same flaw. The pages were corrugated, because the binding was too tight.

Does this concern all copies of the book (the complete print run)?

I have two copies on hand - both of them have the same flaw that you mention.  One copy is UNUSED/MINT and has it to a lesser degree, but it is still clearly there.

Must have been a binding issue, like that which afflicted Oriental Adventures and Unearthed Arcana.  My copy is the same way.

I remember this post from awhile back. . .

I just got an unused Monster Mythology book in a lot I purchased.  The binding is not over-tight/warped.  This is the first one I have gotten that didn't have this flaw.

Paul, apart from the binding are there any other characteristics of a different printing? I know they didn't write the print run in these, but maybe a different logo or cover price?

I just sold one like that. There was a large corrugation across the middle, probably from the bind. It was mint other than that and clearly never opened.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

Well, here are two large scans.  I compared it to some archived scans that had the binding defect and they appear 100% identical.

I have dozens of cases of these, and it is pretty much how they are.  I believe it has to do with the glue drying too tight when it was bound, thus pulling the pages making them look wavy.
