Many many many years ago I was really into RPG big time. Used to play D&D, Traveller, Gamma World, Tunnels and Trolls etc. I remember when I first saw a RPG rule book from the then, tiny Games Workshop in London, and it was this one:
I think it is known as the Chris Harvey Fifth UK Edition and was published in 1979. But I might be wrong. It only had a few pages, a lot fewer than other editions, and the artwork would now be classed as poor, but at the time I thought it was amazing.
I'm really after a PDF version of this edition so I can wonder down memory lane. I've scoured the internet searching for a copy. I found a hard copy on eBay (eBay Link), but they want £125 (approx $159) for it. Rip off or what.

That is indeed the first UK edition, basically the US second edition plus the T&T supplement, published in 1977 by Strategy Games, not the 1979 Chris Harvey edition. There is no PDF available. There were matching versions of the first three solo adventures, too. I disagree with you about the artwork looking poor now, although it does definitely feel of its time.
This crops up occasionally on eBay and I can definitely say that £125 is far too much, with patience it can be had for a fraction of that.
EDIT: I've occasionally posted pictures of this edition on Twitter

Thanks both for your replies. And thank you for the correction re the edition version. I now know what I'm looking for. Saying that, it looks like the US version did have different, better artwork. So it is the UK version I'm after.
