    The First Edition, First Printing of the First Harry Potter Book, Virtually as New

    J. K. Rowling. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. London: Bloomsbury, [1997]. First edition, first issue (with "Joanne Rowling" and the complete number line on the copyright page, as well as "1 Wand" listed twice on page 53. Octavo. 223, [1, blank] pages. Publisher's original pictorial boards. Although this book was not issued with a dust jacket, this copy is now housed in a first edition, later printing dust jacket. Book and jacket are virtually as new - almost unheard of for this title. This copy was issued in a very small print run, around 500 copies, most of which went to libraries or into the hands of children. Therefore, a copy in incredible condition, such as this one, is exceedingly rare. It is the best copy we've ever seen.
