The Khmer language, also called Cambodian and is the official language of Cambodia, is spoken by approximately 16 million speakers, and is quite an interesting and long history. The main dialect spoken Central Khmer, given that the central plains are where the most people are concentrated. 

The writing history of Khmer is also quite long - with written examples dating back to the 7th century, with the earliest known example from 611 A.D. To learn more about the Khmer language, Click Here. and Here.

Khmer translation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

ហេរី ផោតធ័រ និង សិលាទេព

1st Edition Khmer translation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, published Cambodia Daily Press in 2000 and translated by Un Tim. This very tall and thin book features GrandPre cover art and Guardian rear quote and lovely, vivid bright colors. This translation is increasingly scarce outside of Cambodia. I love the Khmer script.

There is no ISBN given for this book.

Khmer translation of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

ហេរី ផោតធ័រ និង បន្ទប់ សម្ងាត់

Unusually, the 2nd and last book published in Khmer uses the Bloomsbury UK cover art by Cliff Wright instead of keeping with the US Mary GrandPre art. Like the first book, this book is also a tall and thin book. This book was also published by Cambodia Daily Press and translated by Un Tim. 

Like the first book, there is not an ISBN given on this book.
