    First edition, first state, with the following first state issue points: Copyright page number line descending from 10 on the left to 1 on the right; On the front flap of the dust jacket, paragraph 5, lines 1 and 2 does not have "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" in italics; Paragraph 5, line 7 "Tom El-Shawk Age 11" has no comma after the name and age has a capital "A"; Paragraph 6, line 1, "Harry Potter" is not italicized; Paragraph 6, line 5, "Harry" is not italicized; Paragraph 6, line 7, "Katrina Farrant Age 10" has no comma after the name and age has a capital "A". Small octavo. [256] pages.

    Original pictorial boards, dust jacket. Book is very slightly skewed, jacket with a small closed tear to the bottom of the front panel fold at the fore-edge, and some general light creasing and soiling. Altogether, a very good, collectible copy.

    J.K. Rowling has captured the hearts and minds of children (and adults) around the world with her incredibly successful Harry Potter series. Each title dominated the best-seller lists for months, and the movies from the books have all been blockbusters thus far. This second book covers Harry's second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, when the mysterious Chamber of Secrets is opened, and Harry and friends must battle to safeguard their lives and the world.
