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

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.
