Harry Potter and the philosopher's stone

£120.00

Product description

Harry Potter is an ordinary boy who lives in a cupboard under the stairs at his Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon's house, which he thinks is normal for someone like him who's parents have been killed in a 'car crash'. He is bullied by them and his fat, spoilt cousin Dudley, and lives a very unremarkable life with only the odd hiccup (like his hair growing back overnight!) to cause him much to think about. That is until an owl turns up with a letter addressed to Harry and all hell breaks loose! He is literally rescued by a world where nothing is as it seems and magic lessons are the order of the day. Read and find out how Harry discovers his true heritage at Hogwarts School of Wizardry and Witchcraft, the reason behind his parents mysterious death, who is out to kill him, and how he uncovers the most amazing secret of all time, the fabled Philosopher's Stone! All this and muggles too. Now, what are they?

The dust jacket shows some surface wear and is sunned on the spine. It is rubbed at the extremities but has not been price-clipped.There is a small triangular open tear ( 1/8") on the top back fold and closed tears ( 6/8", 1/8" and 5/8" ) on the other folds. All the printed matter and blurb is intact and legible. The boards show minimal wear apart from light rubbing at the extremities. Pages 145 to 221 are slightly buckled, possibly from previus damp, but the binding is tight. The top cut edge is slightly sunned.The pages and actual text are very clean and unmarked.
