Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone [First Australian Edition]
[Maryborough, Vic. Australia]: Bloomsbury, [1998]. First Edition Thus. Hardcover Hardcover. Fine/Fine. The first in J. K. Rowling's blockbuster seven-book Harry Potter series. This copy is the first Australian edition (stated First published in Great Britain in 1997 on copyright page, with full number line). Illustrated boards include the 1997 Gold Award Winner seal on the bottom left cover. An excerpted review by the Sunday Telegraph runs along the bottom front cover, with additional reviews on the back board beneath a publisher's blurb about the story. The dust jacket also contains the Gold Award seal, and notice of same runs along the bottom front cover. The back of the dust jacket contains the same publisher's blurb but not the reviews. Pricing information is ommitted entirely from the jacket and oddly, the ISBN on the jacket is that of the first British paperback edition. In contrast, the printer's imprint page contains only the ISBN of the Brittish hardback. The copyright holder is listed as 'Joanne' Rowling, which was shortened to 'J.K.' in later editions and used throughout the rest of the series. The book is dated 1997, but the presence of the Gold Award winner seal on the cover and a notice of availability of the second book in the series, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, suggests the book was printed in 1998. A scarce, early Harry Potter. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket.
