Date of Publication:




Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone By J K Rowling Early Edition





This is a superb opportunity to purchase



paperback book



first published in Great Britain in 1997

Bloomsbury Publishing Plc 

No Line 30 29 28 27

For sale in this lot is what I suspect to be a very early edition or possibly a first edition copy. It is not stated as a first edition copy, but the picture on the back cover is of Dumbledore with a short brown beard and moustache (see pic) which I believe only appears on early edition copies. I'm sure all the collectors out there will know.

This book is in a good read condition. There is some creasing and scuffing to the cover and spine and also a sticker on the front cover. There are a couple of small marks on the back cover. Pages are in a good readable condition. There is a name written in black pen at the top of the front endpaper.
