Since I recently posted about Harry Potter in Different Languages, I thought I would share another of the Harry Potter books that I have in different languages. During a visit to Israel for an archaeological dig I stopped at a book store and purchased a copy, of the first book, in Hebrew.
Previously I have written posts about Harry Potter in English, Spanish, German, Italian, Chinese, Brazilian Portuguese, and Korean. I have books in only a small portion of the at least 75 different languages that the books have been translated into.
Here is the Korean version of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
You can see that the cover art is the similar to the English version that we are used to, except that it has the title in Hebrew.
The back cover is interesting as the picture is reversed on the English version. The owl is on the right instead of the left. The text of course is in Hebrew.
The front flyleaf has a synopsis of the book.
The back flyleaf has information about J.K. Rowling, but does not include a picture. At the bottom is a list of awards the book has won.
Can you read this edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone?
