I just purchased this item off Ebay -

** eBay auction listing blocked.  Please enable cookies in your browser for this site and for eBay! **

The seller states he believes it may be a reprint because of the quality.  Were these ever reprinted?

Thanks!

I seem to recall that there are at least 3 different prints of it.

Only one printing according to Heroic Worlds

Five printings that we know of.  Most copies that turn up are unused, and it was printed on heavy-stock paper, so they tend to hold up over time.

I believe some of the colouring books also had an aussie print run as well

There's no text on the page that shows the dungeon map - on my copies, that is where it says Order of Combat (for the coloring book game), with a small pic of the ki-rin below that. Not sure how that jives with any of the various printings. Also, I'm curious about the barcodes - stickers, or actually printed on the back cover?

You're thinking of different coloring books -- a series of four or so, that were just coloring books.  The "Official AD&D Coloring Album" actually had an adventure in it.

As I recall, the barcodes were printed.

I'll see if my copies are easy to access and double check.  I'm sure I quick collecting them after 3 different prints.

I pulled mine down from my shelves and I have a 1st, 2nd , 3rd and 5th print.
1st print: Large ISBN in upper right on the back cover/ upper left in large print Troubador Press 2.95
2nd print small ISBN in upper right on the back cover/ upper left in small print Troubador Press 009-2/350
3rd print identical to the 2nd print
5th print ISBN is in a white barcoded box in the bottom lower left of the back cover; the bottom line of the box reads 3323600395 (which I take to indicate the price has changed again to 3.95)/ top left of the back cover just reads Troubador Press
