Quidditch Through the Ages (red)

Harry's copy

An unidentified girl took a copy to a Flying lesson in 1991.

Harry Potter was given this book by Hermione Granger for his first Quidditch match. However it was taken away by Severus Snape, making up the rule that books from the Library was not indeed to be taken away from the Library itself.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • A real version of this book was written by J. K. Rowling for charity.
  • A discrepancy in the book is that although Harry had the book in his first year (1991-1992), there is an event listed that occurred in 1994. It is, however, possible, that the "real" edition was updated.
  • On the virtual pet website, Neopets, a book named Altador Cup Through the Ages may be an homage to Quidditch Through the Ages.
  • Rita Skeeter's review of the book stated: "I've read worse."
