London: Bloomsbury, 1999. [Fantasy] FIRST EDITION, FIRST IMPRESSION, third issue (see below). Octavo (21 x 14cm), pp.317; . Publisher's pictorial hardcovers in dust-jacket illustrated by Cliff Wright, priced at £10.99. A lovely fine copy with the usual speckling to the endpapers (poor paperstock was chosen). Shows extremely well. The first issue states 'Copyright Joanne Rowling' on the copyright page, whereas the second and third issue are amended to 'J.K Rowling'. The first issue also has a misaligned text block 'burnt (drop) so much' p.7, which is corrected in the subsequent issues. Second and third issue identical but for adverts included at the rear of the third issue. All three issues feature full strike-line numbers and are therefore 'states' or 'issues' rather than separate impressions. Item #65950
