"The definitive work on the origins and history of Quidditch. Highly recommended."
Brutus Scrimgeour's review of Quidditch Through the Ages.[src]

Quidditch Through the Ages is a book detailing the history, evolution, and rules of Quidditch. It was written by Kennilworthy Whisp and became one of the most popular books in the library of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The school librarian, Madam Pince states that it is "pawed about, dribbled on and generally maltreated nearly every day" although the Headmaster, Albus Dumbledore states that this is praise for a book. The copy in question is protected by the Thief's Curse. It was published by Whizz Hard Books.

Behind the scenes

  • 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."
