"An illustrated compendium of monsters: Aerial Servant to Zombie"

From the back cover:
"OVER 350 MONSTERS

NO. OF ATTACKS: 1

The quasit is the unchanged form of the familiar of a chaotic evil magic-user or cleric. As such it is very rarely encountered except in the planes of the abyss or upon the death of its master or ..."
More Information Edit | History

The first book of the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons line.

Like the Players Handbook, this has an odd printing history.

The first three printings are actually really easy to tell apart.

1st: Lizardman logo, red centered "Advanced Dungeons & Dragons*" with a small note under that "* TM Reg. Applied For"
2nd: Lizardman logo, red centered "Advanced Dungeons & Dragons(R)"
3rd: Wizard logo, red centered "Advanced Dungeons & Dragons(R)"

After that, it gets a little weird.

For some reason TSR ran out of covers for the third printing long before anything else, so pseudo 4th printing covers were used with 3rd printing interiors. However, the covers actually differed slightly from the 4th printing covers in that there was no ISBN number on the back. More of these were printed than any of the Player's Handbook or Dungeon Master's Guide hybrids, and they are certainly easier to spot.

3.5th: Wizard logo, red upper left corner "Advanced D&D" on yellow band, no ISBN on back. Still says 3rd on title page.
4th: Wizard logo, red upper left corner "Advanced D&D" on yellow band, ISBN on back.
5th: Wizard logo, red upper left corner "Advanced D&D TM" on yellow band. Still says 4th on title page.
6th: Face logo, red upper left corner "Advanced D&D TM, Adventure Games" on yellow band. Still says 4th on title page.
7th and later: Red Dragon cover. Says 4th Edition on title page until the 9th printing.
