The Potter legacy is a worldwide phenomenon.
But how did the characters that defined Britain become part of the nation’s national mythology?
The answers may surprise you.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone: The Illustrated Encyclopedia by James D. Allen (William Morrow, 2019) is a modern-day adventure.
It is the first book of a series to be released this year.
The book is not merely a story about a wizard.
It also features characters that have been part of British culture for centuries.
Its title derives from a phrase attributed to Harry Potter and his friend Ron Weasley, who lived at the time in London’s West End.

The two shared a passion for writing, and together they created their own short story collection.
Their friends and colleagues often referred to them as the Philosophers Stone.
After the series ended in 1999, Harry and Ron wrote an essay for the Daily Telegraph titled “The Philosopher, the Philosophiseur, the Sorcerer and the Wizard”.
The essay sparked a debate about the history of British literature.
Harry wrote that he “got the impression that the British had written a lot of good stuff, but they had not realised how many writers had actually been born in this country.”
It is also the reason why Rowling, author of Harry Potter books, created the series and its characterisation of the British past.
“We have the world’s greatest storytellers who came from nowhere,” Rowling said at the release of the series in May.
What is the Philosophical Stone?
The Philosophers stone is a stone inscribed with the names of the characters of the Harry Potter series, the story that began the world of the magical world and has become one of the most popular stories of all time.
It was discovered in the middle of the 19th century by William Hogarth, an amateur historian and a keen amateur historian.
He wrote that in his day “a lot of people would have had the idea that this was the stone of a man or a woman, but no one had ever been able to find it”.
In 1894, the stone was discovered and placed in the National Museum in London, where it remains today.
Why the Philosophe?
It’s a question many fans have pondered for decades, and one that Rowling addressed in her introduction to the series.
“This stone, in some way, represents the whole history of Britain,” she said.
She also wrote that this is not a book that “has any magical elements”.

It has the power to be timeless and timelessly accurate.”
Potter’s family, the Weasley family, became part of Britain’s national past when the book was first published in 1949.
They lived in London for years, and they became friends, though their relationship was short-lived.
When Harry and Hermione, the three youngest students in Hogwarts, moved to the West End of London in 1949, they were in their first year.
The trio would later be seen together at Hogwarts, the famous wizarding school.
During the first three books of the original series, Harry’s family was not mentioned.
In the final book, Harry learns about the family’s history from his grandfather, James Potter, who had lived in Britain from 1787 until his death in 1883.
James Potter was a prominent member of the wizarding community and his family was well-known in the country.
He founded the London School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, a magical research institution.
Many of his friends and classmates were also members of the same family, and their lives would continue to intersect.
Hogarth’s son, James McGonagall, was born in 1856, and he was a professor of history at Oxford University at the same time Harry was growing up.
He is one of several people from the same generation to have played a major role in Britain’s history.
This is not the only story about the Potter legacy that has been told over the years.
Rowling has also written an entire series of novels about her childhood in the wizard’s fictional hometown of Burnt Hickory.
I know what you’re thinking: this is only a single book, and I already know that I’m a fan.
But I want to know more about the people who shaped Britain and its story.
Is the Potter series a ‘classic’ of British literary history?
