Ref. 111973   Edition. First Edition

Published By: Bloomsbury 1997 (London)

The true first edition, first impression of the book that started it all, one of just 500 copies produced. Original illustrated hardcover binding, no jacket as issued. Wendy Cooling's review to front board, 'young wizard' to the spine and rear cover, mis-spelt 'philospher's' to blurb to rear cover. Copyright 'Joanne' Rowling with number line 10-1. '1 wand' listed twice to page 53. A lovely bright copy which has benefited from a small amount of restoration retaining all the original elements. Library label internally, some wear to top edge of spine and to front hinge. A good example of this sought-after book in custom clamshell. A landmark in the world of rare books and the start of a multi-billion dollar franchise.
