The new books, published by the British Library in conjunction with Bloomsbury, will be released alongside the “History Of Magic” exhibit opening this October. The new pair of publications will reportedly feature previously unreleased Harry Potter manuscript pages and sketches from Rowling.Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone, the first of novel in Rowling’s Harry Potter series, was originally released on June 26, 1997. It was followed, of course, by six more best-selling entries and the blockbuster film series.
