Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone [excerpt] in: Bloomsbury Autumn Highlights 1997. Extracts From Forthcoming Titles June to December 1997
Bloomsbury Publishing 1997 - First printing. Publisher's printed card wraps, as issued. pp.280. Spine square with no creases. This copy appears to be unread; some superficial creases to the wraps front and rear and a little wear to the corners, the leaves browning at the edges; otherwise no faults. Published by Bloomsbury to promote the new work of 25 authors from their forthcoming Autumn 1997 list; published for limited distribution to the UK book trade, the works appearing in excerpt. Presented here are 14 pages of text from Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, at the time the first work of an unknown author; J. K. Rowling is one of five published in the Children's section. The excerpt from the Philosopher's Stone is at pp.189-202, prefaced by a six-line synopsis of the novel, a five-line review by Wendy Cooling and two lines of publishing details including the ISBN and the proposed publication date of June 26th. Whilst preceded by the Proof, the text published here precedes publication of the first edition. An ephemeral item and very scarce, this being only the second example encountered in 15 years, making the Publisher's Proof appear almost commonplace in comparison. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
