Wanted: Macedonian translation of book 4 
 

1st edition, earlier print Macedonian translation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, published by Publishing House Kultura. The later print books have a bright pinkish/red in place of the dark brownish-red where the Harry Potter lettering is on the front cover; also the logo is much bigger on the front bottom of the books and has Dumbledore on the back cover. My copy is an ex-library book, as are the few that are being found in the marketplace. This book is one of the 6 hardest translations to find.

ISBN: 9989322724

Translator: Blagorodna Bogeska-Ančevska

Format: Softcover

Notes:  One of the hardest translations to find; all 7 books published; last two published in HC only by a different publisher (see those two books below).

Difficulty-to-Find Rating: 10, Extremely Hard

1st edition Macedonian translation of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, published by Publishing House Kultura in 2002. Like the book above, this one too is a former library book, actually out of the same library; i love the idea that my Philosopher's Stone and Chamber of Secrets were shelf-buddies before they came to me :) And like the Philosopher's Stone, the Chamber of Secrets is fairly hard to find outside of as well as inside of Macedonia.

1st edition Macedonian translation of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, published by Publishing House Kultura in 2003. Like the two books before it, it is fairly hard to find inside and outside of Macedonia. The demand is much lower than that of the first book, but scarcity is still there. And unlike my first two Macedonian translations, this book is not a former library book.

1st edition translation of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, published by Publishing House Kultura in 2004. Not as hard t0 find as the 1st three books; also considered less collectible and therefore less collectibly valuable than the first three books.

1st edition Macedonian translation of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, published by Mladinska kniga Skopje in 2011. Like the Half-Blood Prince this book is easily found on Macedonian websites. I would be curious to know how these last two translations compare to the first five as far as readability and if there are issues between the two different translators
