I have a softback 1977 AD&D Monster Manual (unicorn & centaur on cover) and was wondering how rare these are & whether I should be on the look out for the PHB softback version & DMG.  As far as I'm aware they were only produced in the UK.

Thanks in advance.

There never was a GW version of the DMG.

Both books come up fairly regularly on eBay.co.uk

Condition is very important as the bindings had a habit of self destructing with regular use. So, check that every page is present.

The MM will possibly have a printing number and date on the copyright page. If it doesn't then its a first printing. The 3rd printing is by far the most common and can be sometimes be picked up for less than £5. For a very nice 1st you might get £25 on a good day. And I have never seen a 2nd in the flesh.

The PHB seems to be a little rarer than the MM. But it doesn't affect prices too much. Printings are not as obvious as the MM. See the link for further info.

Hope that helps.

I stand corrected. :wink: Just haven't seen a nice one for a while.
