Afrikaans

The Afrikaans translation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was published by Human & Rousseau. Only a few print runs of the book were produced. Moreover, I've heard from Afrikaans speakers that the translation wasn't very well done, making the book not so popular. Today, the book is out of print and quickly becoming harder to find as the Harry Potter translation collectorship grows. This book is a 3rd Print.
