The graph paper is silly, yeah.

The hex paper is a bit more reasonable, but there are a few places that have free hex grids online.

To be fair, you do get 130 pages of hexes or 44 pages of graph paper in your PDF for that $0.99 :D
Although you'd be able to make one yourself, with all of the editing programs around you could draw directly on the graph paper using a tablet and stylus to keep a digital copy rather than needing to print it out. This isn't to say it's a great deal, inspite of how cheap it is, but it does have its uses.

This is a little odd. The original three-volume set has been added...except its already been on drivethrurpg for quite a while. However, the cover is different so I guess this is a different printing.

Dungeons & Dragons Three-Volume Boxed Set

Here is the one that's been there since Jan 2016, in case you're curious.

OD&D Dungeons & Dragons Original Edition
The PDF from January 2016 is the "Original Edition Premium Reprint" that WoTC released in November 2013. The new PDF is a scan of a sixth or seventh print of the original version. The Premium Reprint was recreated using the same print, so the content is almost exactly the same, although the Premium Reprint PDF includes the Reference Sheets while the newer PDF doesn't.

I can confirm that. I was able to buy a copy before it was taken down.
Most of the hobbits and ents have been replaced, just not all of them. On pages 8 and 9 of Men & Magic they are halflings, but on page 6 they are still hobbits. That would make it a sixth print, except that page 9 of The Underworld and Wilderness Adventures also has two hobbit references, which it shouldn't if this is really a sixth print. I could only find ents on page 33 of Men & Magic; all the other references were to treants. My best guess is that this is Frankenstein scan of a sixth print of Men & Magic plus a slightly earlier version of Volume III. A bit moot now, given that it has been taken down.

It's been so long since we've had decent updates that getting the "follow your favourites" email with these on them was a real surprise. What wasn't a suprise was that the guide to the ethereal plane is now PoD, I got an email about it the PDF being updated (and it is so much nicer to read now) so I knew it was about to be printable.

I still have some of those PDFs from the WotC website, I did pick up the orc's head book though since I have no idea if I ever picked that one up. Honestly, with PCs dying before decent cloud storage options, it's amazing I still have any of them left.
