It was a required textbook and as such was on the list of items needed by first years for Transfiguration classes in 1991 and 1992 for first[2] and second year[3] students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Before Ginny Weasley's first year at Hogwarts, Lucius Malfoy managed to slip Tom Riddle's diary into her second-hand copy of the book in Flourish and Blotts, leading to the re-opening of the Chamber of Secrets in that term.[3]
