This auction is for an extremely rare first edition, second print hardback Ted Smart edition of:
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.
Known as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone in the USA.
Written by JK Rowling.
This rare, new and unread early Ted Smart print is in excellent condition, the pages are still tight together, as though it has only ever been opened just a small way to check the printing edition which is FIRST EDITION and just SECOND PRINTING!!!
Denoted by the numbers
10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2
Unusually this edition states author as
JOANNE ROWLING ('copyright text' in picture above).
Thomas Taylor Cover Art. In a fine, unclipped dust jacket.
These books have become very scarce indeed.
This is the first British edition of the author's first book that has both a dust jacket and a complete number line. The Bloomsbury edition did not have a dust jacket until the third printing. States Winner of the 1997 Smarties Gold Award.
Ted Smart is mail order only publisher who bought the rights to reissue the Harry Potter series and is identical in every way to the Bloomsbury edition, other than the publisher's name.
This edition also features and interesting illustration of a young Dumbledore with brown hair on the back DJ cover (this changed to the more familiar older Dumbledore for later editions).
