AD&D Player's Handbook, 2nd Ed.
[ PHB 2nd Ed., Revision ]
- 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.")
