This is the original synopsis of the first Harry Potter book. It was typed by J.K. Rowling to accompany the opening chapters and circulated among prospective publishers. A copy was submitted to Bloomsbury Publishing and was a significant step in convincing them to offer J.K. Rowling her first contract. The lessons at Hogwarts are described here. The prospect of learning more about these magical subjects is part of what makes Harry Potter’s world so fascinating.
