Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone

By Rowling, J K




First published by Bloomsbury in the UK in 1997, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone set off a literary epic that would envelop and change children's literature for the 21st Century. The first book of a seven-book series, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone quickly captured the imagination and admiration of children and adults alike, and would go on to win countless awards in literature.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone has been translated into over seventy languages, including Latin and Greek. It, along with the other six books in the series, has been cinematically adapted as well.

British Fantasy Award (1999), Mythopoeic Fantasy Award for Adolescent Literature (2008), British Book Award for Children's Book of the Year (1998), Smarties Prize (1997), Prijs van de Nederlandse Kinderjury (2002) ...more Prijs van de Nederlandse Kinderjury (2002), Rebecca Caudill Young Reader's Book Award (2001), South Carolina Book Award for Junior Book Award (2001), Grand Canyon Reader Award for Teen Book (2000), Charlotte Award (2000), Nene Award (2000), Massachusetts Children's Book Award (2000), Colorado Blue Spruce Young Adult Book Award (2001), Blue Hen Book Award for Chapter Book (2001), Nevada Young Readers' Award for Young Reader Category (2000), Sasquatch Reading Award (2000), Golden Archer Award for Middle/Junior High (2000), Indian Paintbrush Book Award (2000), Carnegie Medal Nominee (1997), ALA's Top Ten Best Books for Young Adults (1999)


First edition identification and notes

The true first edition is considered the 1997 UK Bloomsbury edition, and copies are extremely scarce. Only about 500 hardcover copies were printed in the first run, so those are typically the most valuable of the original 5,000 copy run.

There are several points for true first editions. First, the word Bloomsbury is included in the title page. Second, the copyright date is 1997. Third, the copyright page will include the full number line. And finally, there is a misprint on page 53, which lists "1 wand" twice in the school supplies list.

Other collectible or notable editions

There are countless different editions of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, but there are a few notable collectible editions. The first US edition was published by Scholastic in 1998 under the revised title Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, with small changes Americanizing some of the language.

An illustrated version of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was published in 2015 by Arthur A. Levine Books, and it was illustrated by Jim Kay.

The sequels include Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and Half-Blood Prince, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

The publisher page credits Joanne Rowling, but does not have the original erratum, a missing space between "r" and "1" on Thomas Taylor (illustrator). Book and dust jacket are in pristine condition.

ROWLING, J. K.

London: Bloomsbury,, 1997 & 1998. 2 volumes, octavo. Philosopher's Stone in original pictorial wrappers, Smarties sticker to front cover, issued without a dust jacket. Chamber of Secrets in original pictorial boards, with the dust jacket. Philosopher's Stone slightly faded at spine, covers slightly creased, light creasing to top corners of some pages; a very good copy. Chamber of Secrets lightly bumped at spine ends, small mark to fore edge, a couple of marks to front free endpaper and half-title; an excellent copy in the dust jacket, lightly faded at spine panels with very slight creasing at spine panel ends. First edition, first impression of the Chamber of Secrets, first edition, eleventh impression of Philosopher's Stone, both inscribed by the author for Iain Dallas at a signing when he was a nine-year old-boy. He had written various spellings of his name in pencil on the title page of Philosopher's Stone: "Iain / Eoin Dallas / Ian Dallas / Ean Dallas". Rowling, upon seeing this, inscribed the title page of Philosopher's Stone "To Iain (not Eoin / Ian or Ean) with best wishes J. K. Rowling". Continuing the theme, she then inscribed the copy of Chamber of Secrets on the front free endpaper, "To Iain (how about Eeyan?) J. K. Rowling". A charmingly inscribed set of books, showing Rowling clearly enjoying interacting with her young fans, at a time when her fame was rapidly growing.

Vols. 3-7 remain in original mylar packaging. Front hinge of vol. 2 slightly loose, else a pristine set. First deluxe editions. 7 vols. 8vo. Complete set of the Harry Potter deluxe edition. A rare, as-new deluxe set of Rowling's seminal work of children's literature. The "Potter" books, initially published from 1997 to 2007, have been tranlated into eighty languages and are among the most popular works of literature the twenty-first century has yet produced. Writing first in Edinburgh cafés and later under worldwide media scrutiny, Rowling created one of the most immersive and beloved magical worlds in modern fantasy. Though the series has now spawned an award-winning play and additional film franchise, the novels remain Rowling's finest and most distinctive work. An essential addition to any "Potter" fan's library. Volume seven has yellow sewn bands and a purple marker ribbon rather than the purple sewn bands and green marker ribbon called for in Errington.

He is bullied by them and his fat, spoilt cousin Dudley, and lives a very unremarkable life with only the odd hiccup (like his hair growing back overnight!) to cause him much to think about. That is until an owl turns up with a letter addressed to Harry and all hell breaks loose! He is literally rescued by a world where nothing is as it seems and magic lessons are the order of the day. Read and find out how Harry discovers his true heritage at Hogwarts School of Wizardry and Witchcraft, the reason behind his parents mysterious death, who is out to kill him, and how he uncovers the most amazing secret of all time, the fabled Philosopher's Stone! All this and muggles too. Now, what are they? This is Jo's first book and she has already written seven outlines for Harry's further adventures at Hogwarts.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

J.K. Rowling

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (also known as "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" in the U.S. Edition) by J.K. Rowling (author of the Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban, etc.) Hardcover First Illustrated Edition - First Printing Bloomsbury UK 2015. Illustrated by Jim Kay in full colour with both full-page and in-text illustrations. Printed in two collumns, also there are splotches, stains, and dust illustrated on the pages, which appears to be a recurring theme of the book, making the book seem like it was one of Harry's actual books during his studies. Included are a sampling of the illustrations. Scroll down to see them. Most likely will already be going into subsequent printings. This copy is a TRUE first printing of this edition. NOTE: The original UK/British English text of the Harry Potter books is far superior than the "Americanized" text of the US editions published by Scholastic. If you've never read the original British version of any of the Harry Potter books , I highly recommend them. They read lighter and wittier than their American siblings. This edition contains the original UK/British English text as written by J.K. Rowling. NOTE: All modern books with dust jackets come with dust jacket covers. ALSO: The picture is the actual item for sale. (The picture is NOT a stock photo.)
