The Durlsey's had everything they wanted, but they also had a secret...

ROWLING, J.K. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

Bloomsbury, 1997.

First edition, first issue, with all issue points. 8vo. Pictorial paper covered boards with design by Thomas Taylor. A near fine copy, bright and clean with light rubs to the spine ends and corners. The text block which is clean and free from inscriptions has some of the usual browning to the paper and very light spotting to the foreedge.

The first Harry Potter book. Published simultaneously in both hardback and paperback, the hardback edition had a print run of only 500 copies, of which around 300 were sent to libraries. This is perhaps one of the most influential children's books of a generation and with only 200 non library copies to go round the first edition has climbed steadily in value and desirability.
