"First published in Great Britain in 1999" is stated on the copyright page with full number line "10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1" and the printer stated as "Clays Ltd, St Ives plc". The true first edition has "Joanne Rowling" on the copyright page and dropped text on page 7 (see photo). The boards are illustrated to match the dust jacket. The dust jacket has a price of £10.99 on the bottom corner of the front flap. There is a second state of the first edition that corrects the dropped text on page 7, and states "J.K. Rowling" on the copyright page. There is also a third state of the first edition that has the same changes as the second state, but the printer statement is removed on the copyright page and there are two pages of black and white advertisements in the rear of the book for the previous two books in the Harry Potter series.
