This is a First Edition/First Print Large Print Edition Hardback of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.
These books were not for sale in shops anywhere and were available only from libraries within the United Kingdom.
This book is in excellent/looks unread condition.
The hardback cover and spine are also in superb condition. Inside the book there are no creases, folds or inscriptions and the binding is tight. This edition was issued without a dust jacket. A fantastic find - an elusive book and most importantly the number line 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 signifying First Edition/First Print status.
It is reckoned only a matter of hundreds were printed, with many that are left, in very poor condition.
As library books they were read & abused mercilessly by children...the thought!!!
A perfect addition to a J K Rowling collection
