New York: Arthur A. Levine Books / Scholastic Press, 1998
First edition. First printing, in the unclipped, first issue dust jacket. A very good to near fine copy. A previous owner’s name signed on the first free endpaper, and a little bump to the top corner of the text block. The spine unfaded, boards clean, and the contents crisp throughout. The dust jacket with two traces of damp stain to the verso only, not affecting the front. A beautifully presentably example overall. Re-titled from the Philosophers Stone, this is the very first - and certainly the rarest and most important - of the American editions in the Harry Potter series.
