About this book

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is the second book in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. The story follows Harry Potter, a young wizard attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, as he and his friends Ron and Hermione investigate a series of attacks on students by a mysterious monster. Harry discovers the monster is actually a basilisk, a giant serpent that can kill with a single glance. With the help of his friends and new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, Gilderoy Lockhart, Harry must enter the Chamber of Secrets to defeat the basilisk and save his schoolmates, including Ron's younger sister Ginny who has been taken hostage by the evil wizard, Tom Riddle.

From the publisher

J.K. Rowling was a struggling single mother when she wtrore the beginnings of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone on scraps of paper at a local cafe.  But her efforts were soon rewarded with an award from the Scottish Arts Council enabling her to finish the novel.  She has since won numerous awards including the ABBY Award 9American Booksellers Book Award) 1999.
READER BIO:
The New York Times hailed Jim Dale as "The Toast of Broadway" in his title role in the musical Barnum.  He has a long list of credits on the stage and in film, and was nominated for an Oscar for writing the lyrics for Georgy Girl.

First Edition Identification

The first edition of Harry Potter and Chamber of Secrets was published in the UK by Bloomsbury, in 1998. "First published in Great Britain in 1998" is stated on the copyright page with a number line of “10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1”, and the printer stated as "Clays Ltd, St Ives plc”.

The boards are illustrated to match the dust jacket, which has a price of £10.99 on the bottom corner of the front flap. The two reviews printed on the dust jacket were by The Sunday Times, and The Independent on Saturday. Early printings lack the Hogwarts logo on the copyright page which was later added to hardcover editions. First printings of the paperback edition do have the logo. 

Printed in 1999 by Scholastic Press, the first US edition of Harry Potter and Chamber of Secrets is also very valued in the book market. The copyright page has the full number line "10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1       9/9 0/0 1 2 3 4". "First American edition, June 1999" is stated on the same page. Boards are in blue with an embossed diamond pattern and a green cloth spine. The original price was $17.95. 

Note -  there are book club editions that have the same full number line, but they don’t have the diamond pattern on the boards.
