1st Edition Swedish translation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, published by Tiden. This particular book pictured is called "pre-movie" as the front cover's "Harry Potter" font is different from the later printed books, which feature the same font found on the US Harry Potter books. This "pre-movie" font is an easy indication that the book is an early print. Pre-Movie Swedish books are harder to find as more timed has passed since they were printed and because fewer of them were printed.

Title: Harry Potter och de Vises Sten
ISBN: 9188876659
Translator: Lena Fries-Gedin
Format: Hardcover; no jacket issued

Notes: Pre-Movie books are more rare than the later prints and are gaining more value as the Potter translation collectorship grows; 1st three books available in pre-movie format

This particular edition is out of a box set. I am unsure how many books were available in this set as I've not seen one intact. I do know the box set books have jackets, so this copy is missing its jacket. But I love how the artwork is shown off here.
