Отличия английского и американского изданий книг о Гарри Поттере


The Philosopher’s Stone & The Sorcerer’s Stone
Information & activities by Gareth Pitchford

When the Philosopher’s Stone was released in the US it was renamed the Sorcerer’s Stone… presumably to make it sound more magic orientated rather than philosophy orientated! As a result the Philosopher’s Stone in the actual book was changed to the Sorcerer’s Stone. It wasn’t the only change, however, as other changes were made to the text.

I’ve detailed the changed in the table below. I haven’t included changes due to differences in hyphenation and only a selection of the spelling changes have been included. The page numbers are based on the UK Bloomsbury and US Scholastic paperback editions.
