About this book

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is the fourth book in the Harry Potter Series, written by J.K. Rowling. The widely acclaimed novel was granted the Hugo Award, the only Harry Potter book to receive the highly coveted fantasy and science fiction prize. First published by Bloomsbury in 2000, the fantasy novel follows Harry Potter, a wizard in his fourth year of magical education at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The main event of the year is the Triwizard Tournament, a recently revived competition between three wizarding schools. Each school enters one student selected by the enchanted Goblet of Fire. However, students younger than 17 are not allowed to even enter their names for selection, due to unfortunate accidents in the past. Despite this restriction, Harry Potter finds himself thrust into the Triwizard Tournament. Who entered Harry Potter into the competition? How will he manage the tasks he must complete? And will he survive?

 

Summary

It’s the pivotal fourth novel in the seven-part saga of a young wizard’s coming of age. The thickest. The juiciest yet. Harry Potter turns fourteen. But will all his friends? Rumors have persisted that one of the characters may not see the conclusion of this novel, something the author has refused either to confirm or deny. But we who love Ron, Hermione, Hagrid...even pitiful Neville Longbottom...wait anxiously to see if they will make it through safely. No one’s fate is certain when Volde -- excuse me -- He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named is part of the picture. What is certain is that a novel of excruciating suspense awaits, leavened by J. K. Rowling’s inimitable sense of humor and the burgeoning details of her magical world. Whether it’s taking a front-row seat at the International Quidditch World Cup, or meeting the new Defense-Against-the-Dark-Arts teacher, or finding out if Harry really does start a romance with Cho Chang, fans of the history-making boy-wizard will find their thirst for Hogwarts adventure slaked deliciously...at least for a little while!

First Edition Identification

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was published in two first editions on July 8, 2000, a UK edition and an American edition. Combined, the two had a first printing of over 5 million books.


The first UK edition was published by Bloomsbury. The hardcover book has a dust jacket illustrated by Giles Greenfield. The boards are also illustrated and match the dust jacket art. The original price of £14.99 was printed on the bottom lefthand corner of the inside of the front flap of the dust jacket. This UK edition has 636 pages and was printed by two different printers, Omnia and Clays. Printed on the copyright page is the ISBN, 0 7475 4624 X. Also printed on the copyright page is “First Edition,” below the printer and typeset information. However, there is no number line on the copyright page. 


The first American edition was published by Scholastic Press, with imprint Arthur A. Levine Books. Similar to the first UK edition, this edition is also a hardcover with a dust jacket. However, the illustrator for the American edition is Mary GrandPré, not Giles Greenfield. In addition, the boards underneath are not illustrated with the dust jacket art, but are rust red, and have a black cloth spine. This edition has a badge stating “YEAR 4” on the upper spine of the dust jacket and book itself. The original price of this edition was $25.95, and the copy contained 734 pages. The copyright page contains the full number line “10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1     0/0 01 02 03 04.” The copyright page also holds other useful identifying information. For example, it says “First American edition, July 2000” on the bottom of the copyright page, and shows the ISBN “0-439-13959-7.” Finally, there are varying plant numbers beside “Printed in the U.S.A.” on the copyright page, which stand for the different U.S. printers of the first American edition. There are at least three known printers of the first American edition of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
