Ref. 111062   Edition. First Edition

Illustrated By: Mary Grandpre

Published By: Arthur A. Levine Books An Imprint of Scholastic Press 1999 (New York)

The first US uncorrected proof copy of the first American edition. Softback with original patterned covers. Patterned half title and title page, illustrated vignette to title page. Mary Grandpre listed as illustrator, however the illustrations are not included in the text (as with all proof copies). Light shelf wear, some rubbing over hinge and to spine lower edge. Fore edge a touch sunned. Very small nick to top edge of front cover. Text block edge has some light marks and minor thumbing. Pages themselves are bright and clean, free of any notes. Presents well; sharp and bright. Overall very good condition. 431 pp. Advance proof copies of the Harry Potter books are becoming increasingly sought after and are collectable. This particular US proof is scarce, with no other copies on the market currently and few appearances at auction. While there is not a confirmed amount of these produced and distributed originally, it is generally agreed that the print run would have been low. An excellent example.
