Classic Traveller Facsimile Edition

ADD TO WISHLIST >
Selected Option:

This is the original text of the 1981 edition of Classic Traveller based on page image Scans.

It includes Books 1-2-3, with errata and corrections inserted (where possible; and additional material in an errata appendix). This text is essentially an errata corrected edition faithful to the original Classic Traveller of the early 1980's.

The PDF has been OCR'ed. Margins are upgraded to 6x9 (from 5-1/2 x 8-1/2) for better margins.

I’d love to see a complete set of the 1977 era books. (I’ve got 1-5 in original)

Thank you for the free PDF! I truly appreciate it! I think I will buy the physical print to support it. Will there ever been physical reprints of the 3 LBBs in digest size with the color black front covers?

Perfect replacement for my old LBBs, and it a has all the errata added in or at least included at the back of the book. I've bought several extra copies to give to friends and family.

This is a mess, theres even patches of newer text over the original one with obviously different font and size than the original one, you can even see bits of the original text peek behind the edges of the newer poorly patched text like in pages 38-39-40.

This feels like an incredibly amateurish. badly put together, and ridiculously overpriced product.

Do you have any examples? Considering picking this up but would like to see how bad it is.

Slightly larger, digest is usually 5.83 × 8.27 inches. This is 6x9 inches.

I noticed that Claws is listed twice in the Range Matrix on page 47. Looks like the corrected line for claws was typed over teeth.

Great to have this facsimile edition available with all the errata so carefully integrated. Thank you! One note: in Book 1, page 47 the correction to the row detailing "Claws" was accidentally superimposed on the row for "Teeth", such that "Claws" appears twice (first with the incorrect damage of 1D and second with the correct damage of 2D) and "Teeth" no longer appears. Very easy to correct and the only error detected thus far.

Hello everyone!
Item D, in the world generation checklist (Book 3, page 12), states that if atmosphere is 0, 1, or 1+, apply a DM -4. Does this mean that we just always apply a -4 DM for hydrographics rolls? Does it become 2D-11 + atmosphere?

Nevermind! Looking at the old Book 3, I think it's supposed to be "if atmosphere is 0, 1, or A+".

Is there a re-typeset edition [1] planned? If yes, when would it be expected?

Can any buyers of the hardcopy confirm what cover it has? Hoping for a classic black cover with appropriate editing.
Also, sign me up for the 1977 version!

I'll start by acknowledging this PDF was $1 (I bought the print version with the PDF), so take this with a grain of salt at that price. The PDF is a mess. Fuzzy scan throughout. The big issue foe me is that MANY of the pages are NOT OCR'ed. Feel free to check this if your PDF client lets you ctrl+a on the whole book (PDF-X-Change Viewer does). This leaves entire sections unsearchable. Which greatly reduces the utility of this PDF. There's also some weird glitches where some sections of a page was re-typeset (for what ever reason) and it's alignment is off. This isn't a "Facsimile", it's just a poorly put together non-exact copy of CT 81 Book 1-3. I expected better quality. Lets hope the print at least looks nicer than the PDF does. Unless you're going for the print copy, I'd avoid this at full price if it goes back to $20.

Marc, if you're listening: I would repurchase this again and at full price if you had someone typeset the entire text.

Oh, and to Justin M: The cover looks...See more

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.
