Just looking at this on arrival, without any reading as of yet.

Well, it is a very thick tome indeed. And digest sized is handy I suppose.
It's softcover so treat it as damageable (as anything softcover would be).
It is thick and if you treat it as unbreakable the spine WILL break. And you shouldn't react as surprised.

I plan to regard it as what it is. Old School D&D. All the neatness of pre 2nd edition D&D.
It isn't easy to identify all the nuances without already being a veteran D&D fanatic.
And you don't need to be.
Any veteran DM can tell you, the DM calls the shots.

This to me is a complete one book solution to anyone wanting to run pre 2nd edition D&D.
Try not to obsess over whether to call it 0e BECMI 1e. It doesn't matter enough to mention.

It is what it is, the only book you will need at the table. Not a pile of books. Leaves you room for the adventure paperwork, some dice, some maps, or whatever....See more

Am I to assume that this is the smaller A5 sized copy? Any chance the full size hardcopy/softcopy will be on sale here as POD? Thanks.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
