Harry Potter ja Viisasten Kivi

1st Edition, early print (pre-2001 movie), Finnish translation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, published by Tammi (notice the different "Harry Potter" font). This lovely translation has wonderful cover art and the picture doesn't do it justice. Also, the size is quite fun. Anyway, Pre-movie Finnish translations are fairly hard to come by within the US marketplace.

1st Edition, later print (post-2001 movie release), Finnish translation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, published by Tammi. What gives this book away as a later print is the "Harry Potter" font on the front cover. This lovely translation, as do the rest of the Finnish first editions, has wonderful cover art. Anyway, later print Finnish Philosopher's Stone is easier to find than the pre-movie variation; however, this translations as a whole is harder to find in the US marketplace. is fairly hard to come by as it's not usually sold on the larger e-commerce sites within a decent price point.

Softcover Finnish translation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, published by Tammi. This edition is quite small in comparison to the 1st Edition hardcover Finnish translation. I'm unsure on how easily found this edition is.

Finnish translation featuring Mary GrandPre cover art. Jacket is present, but glued-on. I have seen other GrandPre Finnish books, which leads me to believe that all 7 were published in this format. They seem to be rare, at least in the US marketplace; I was told that thye're not very common in Finland as well.
