Celebrate 20 years of Harry Potter magic!
Dominus et Domina Dursley, qui vivebant in aedibus Gestationis Ligustrorum numero quattor signatis ...
The first words of J.K. Rowling's timeless classic are more familiar to readers as 'Mr and Mrs Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive ...'
Following in the steps of other great children's classics, including Winnie the Pooh (winnie ille pu) and Paddington Bear (ursus nomine paddington), Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is available in Latin. Learners and lovers of Latin will delight in Peter Needham's sparkling translation, which perfectly captures the wit and invention of J.K. Rowling's original, now reissued with stunning new cover art from Jonny Duddle.
Harry Potter has been at the heart of Waterstones since the first copies of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone came into our hands. We’re delighted to share these new editions of the series, now entirely reimagined by one of our favourite writers and illustrators, Jonny Duddle.
