  • Journey back to where the magic began with this pristine Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone first edition, first print. A testament to literary history and Joanne Rowling’s groundbreaking debut, it’s a treasure every serious collector dreams of.

📖 Marks of Authenticity:

  1. Endorsement Enigma: The coveted Wendy Cooling blurb graces the cover.
  2. Sequential Significance: A complete number line (10 to 1) on the copyright page.
  3. Typos & Tales: The iconic double “wand” on page 53 and charming quirks like the “School of Wizardry and Witchcraft” misorder.
  4. Dumbledore’s Debut: A young, pipe-smoking Dumbledore illustration uniquely captured on the back.

🌟 Condition:

  • The book carries no library stamps or bookplates.
  • Barely visible surname of previous own on inside cover.
  • Some slight fraying to top of book cover and inner pages.
  • Slight ripe to edge of first four pages.

📚 Legacy & Lore:
