Item Description: Scholastic/Levine 1998-2008, (NY), 1998. First Edition. The first American editions of the seven volumes of the Harry Potter series. Signed by Rowling on the title page of the first volume, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Together with the first American paperback printings of the first two volumes (Sorcerer's Stone, 1999 and Chamber of Secrets, 2000), as well as the first printings of the U.S. editions of Quidditch Through the Ages, by "Kennilworthy Whisp" (2001); Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by "Newt Salamander" (2001); and The Tales of Beedle the Bard (Children's High Level Group, 2008). The Harry Potter books, starting from a very modest beginning in the U.K., with the first book having a tiny first printing, most of it in softcover, became one of the most successful series in publishing history. The books have sold nearly a half billion copies and each of the titles has sold more than 50 million. The first book was published in the U.S. a year after its initial publication in England, and by that time the American publisher knew that it had a phenomenon on its hands. Even so, the success of the series on this side of the Atlantic surprised everyone, and each successive volume set records for first-day sales -- the final book in the series selling more than 11 million copies in the first 24 hours it was on sale. The American publisher insisted on changing the title of the first book from Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, apparently because they were afraid the U.S. audience would not recognize the alchemical -- i.e., magical -- connotation of "philosopher's stone." The first book was a relatively simple and straightforward fantasy, with a coming-of-age story wrapped up in it. The later books grew increasingly complex, and longer -- the last four all exceeded 600 pages and one of them reached 870 pages in its American edition -- and the themes became both darker and more nuanced. Eventually the coming of age story grew into one that involved a much larger question of identity, and explored the nature of good and evil as well as the meaning of personal responsibility, among a multitude of other themes. Rowling has been credited with restoring an entire generation's willingness to read, and perhaps saving the publishing industry -- at least for a time -- by doing so. Whatever turns out to be the final diagnosis of those issues, it is clear that she created a series of books that have had impact far beyond anyone's original expectations, or imagination, and that impact will be felt for generations, at least. Each of the seven Harry Potter books is fine in a fine dust jacket; the Quidditch and Beasts are fine in wrappers; Beedle is fine in pictorial boards, without jacket, as issued.
