  • Essentially the same text as 2nd Edition, but with new layout and art.

  • The PHB 2nd Ed., Revision contains a second "Forward" section by Steve Winter (February 6, 1995), with the words "This is not AD&D 3rd Edition!"
    This second "Forward" also states "...changes are the sorts of minor corrections and clarifications we make every time we reprint, and we've reprinted both the Player's Handbook and Dungeon Master Guide more than 10 times since 1989!"

  • This version has the ISBN number "0-88038-716-513th " listed inside -- presumedly indicating the 13th printing of 0-88038-716-5 (Player's Handbook, 2nd Ed.)

  • The 1989 version of the AD&D Player's Handbook, 2nd Ed., had 256 pages, the revision (1995) had 320
    (64 additional pages, or as S. Winter puts it "Both books are a lot bigger: 25% more pages in the PHB, 33% more in the DMG.")
