Czech Republic - Czech

The Czech translations of Harry Potter are published by Albatros around 1999. The Czech 1st edition Philosopher's Stone has 2 states of the 1st edition, as well as a 2nd edition and a 3rd, which is the first that features the Mary GrandPre cover art. The 1st state is of course the hardest to find, features "pre-movie" font on the front cover as well as Harry wearing a Top Hat with lips (the illustrator's first iteration of the Sorting Hat); the 2nd state features the same cover art as the 1st, only subbed the now ubiquitous Harry Potter font and moved around a few words on the cover. The 2nd edition features similar cover art to the 1st, only this time Harry is wearing a Wizard Hat Sorting Hat. The books have now also been published in Jonny Duddle covers as well.
