Two English versions with several minor variations of this book exist.
The first version is entitled "Dungeon Master's Guide" and was produced 1989 - about 1994. Two types exist; an early, 1st type, that has the angled TSR logo in white, and a later, 2nd type, that has the logo in gold. No interior print information exists in any of these books and it is probable they have multiple printings (with no reliable way of identifying them).
The second version is entitled "Dungeon Master Guide" and was produced 1995 - about 1998. Three printings are known: 1st printing (TSR), 1995, with a cover price of $20.00; 2nd printing (WotC), 1997, with a cover price of $24.95; and 3rd printing (WotC), about 1998, with updated interior contact information.
