Where can I find a complete list of every D&D book ever released before 3rd Edition?

Is there such a thing? If not, can we compile a list on here for reference?

I'm mostly interested in the supplement material like modules and the hardcover supplements, not things like playing cards or dungeon tiles or anything like that. Just the books.

You can easily search for that on RPGGeek, which has a comprehensive database of all RPG products. Here's the search for D&D, and you can then drill down by version and filter by product type if you don't want cards and whatnot. Or given your specific needs, the database distinguishes AD&D out from D&D. That includes second edition.

RPGGeek was no help for second edition, but has one heck of a comprehensive list! Thanks! This plus the Acaeum should fill in all the gaps. – jasonaburton Feb 12 '11 at 16:09
Hm? AD&D Second Edition search page on RPGGeek: – mxyzplk Feb 12 '11 at 16:10

Is 2nd Edition AD&D there? I don't see it. – jasonaburton Feb 12 '11 at 12:31
You are right, 2nd edition does not seem to be included. – Peter Seckler Feb 12 '11 at 12:33
Thanks anyways, that is 75% of the information I was looking for. – jasonaburton Feb 12 '11 at 12:42
+1 - Yay for the Acaeum, a love bunch of chaps (and chapesses) – Jon Hopkins Feb 14 '11 at 14:03

See also the Acaeum Wiki which is maintained by other people and does include a pretty comprehensive coverage of 2nd edition. See
