Harry Potter Philosophers Stone 1ST EDITION 5TH PRINT Bloomsbury Rowling
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Octavo, original pictorial boards with matching pictorial dust jacket. Young Wizard at head of spine and rear panel. First Edition, Fifth Printing (Hardcover) of J. Rowling’s first novel, Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone, one of only three books in history to sell more than 100 million copies with subsequent titles all exceeding the 50 million mark. A true piece of modern literary history that will undoubtedly stand the test of time. A very nice example of this earlier printing. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is the first novel in the Harry Potter series and J. Rowling’s debut novel, first published in 1997 by Bloomsbury. The writing has been compared to that of Jane Austen, one of Rowling’s favorite authors, or Roald Dahl, whose works dominated children’s stories before the appearance of Harry Potter, and of the Ancient Greek story-teller Homer. It has been translated into several languages and its film adaption became one of the highest-grossing movies of all time. Very Good book in Fine Dust Jacket. Book binding mostly tight and square with moderate slant and looseness causing light foreword lean. Original laminated pictorial boards present clean and unmarked with vibrant original color. Small crease to front top fore-edge corner and much smaller at head and foot of spine. Very light rubbing to corners. Mild bump to rear top edge. Gift inscription to front endpaper, a few open dog-ears with ghost creases, and mild red stain to very small area on fore-edge of pp. Original Dust Jacket presents Fine with original vibrant color and only extremely mild folding of luminant at top and bottom panel edges, which is typical for this title. A tremendous example of this very early printing.
