Harry Potter: A History of MagicMarking the 20th anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, the British Library presents Harry Potter: A History of Magic this autumn. With the structure of the exhibition inspired by the subjects that Harry and his friends study at Hogwarts, from Potions and Herbology to Astronomy and Care of Magical Creatures, it will bring together an exciting display of wizarding books, manuscripts and magical objects to explore the rich magical traditions that the subjects draw on. The displays will combine centuries-old British Library treasures with original material from Bloomsbury's and J.K. Rowling's own archives.

 

About British Library

With over 150 million items, a copy of every publication produced in the UK and Ireland, artwork by artists such as Antony Gormley and Eduardo Paolozzi, and a host of historically momentous works - including the Magna Carta, the Gutenberg Bible, Shakespeare's First Folio and the Lindisfarne Gospels - a guided tour around the British Library is the best way to take it all in.
