Before the authorized translations came out, there was a softcover unauthorized translation of book 1 published by Gasprint (aka MediaNet). They also published book 2 - 7  but only digitally to my knowledge.                        translated the unauthorized books.

Unauthorized Book 1

To hear the 1st paragraph read, click here!

Unauthorized translation of Armenian translation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, published by Gasprint Publishing House in 2004. Interestingly, even though only one book was published by a very small publishing company in the small country of Armenia, this book isn't the that hard to find, at least at the moment. I've seen a few copies for sale on larger e-commerce sites and smaller bookseller sites too, but I don't know anything about this book's original distribution within Armenia.
