1st Edition Azerbaijani translation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, published by Qanun in 2013. This book has wonderful and vivid cover art and I am so thrilled to finally own a copy. The publisher closed its doors a few months after the publication of Azerbaijani translation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, meaning that no new copies of this book will be published unless a new publisher picks up the rights.  Additionally, this particular book has become rare inside Azerbaijan, which will only affect the scarcity in the global marketplace of the book in the future.

1st Edition Azerbaijani translation of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, published by Qanun in 2014. Unlike the Philosopher's Stone, the gold "Harri Potter" letters are slightly raised. Again here, the cover art is wonderful.

This books was published in 2016 by Qanun right before they closed. From what I've been told by those in Baku, Azerbaijan, this book is still found in bookstores there, but quantities aren't that high (and this was back in May 2017). And again, since the publisher has closed its doors, this is only the print run of this book that will be available unless a new publisher picks up the rights for it.

Like the other 3, this book has wonderfully vivid cover art and is really a favorite of mine.
