I had the original books (Players Handbook, Dungeon Master Guide, Monster Manual, Unearthed Arcana and Monster Manual II) when I was... younger. I must have lost them in a move or given away. I was happy to get a hold on the books through DriveThru. Even if "only" a scanned copy of the original material, I was pleasantly surprised by the hard cover book I received. The pages are really nice and clear. Maybe it's my memory, but I thought it looked pretty much the way I remembered my original books. I don't care so much the cover is different: I really wanted to re-read the material. I got this and the Dungeon Master Guide, and promptly decided to order the next books. Also, if you're a Canadian customer, you won't loose your shirt buying this (no outrageous shipping cost either!).
