Harry Potter: A Journey Through A History Of Magic

That scene opens Harry Potter: A Journey Through A History Of Magic, a fun, fact-filled book for young readers that serves as preview to the British Library’s new exhibition, “Harry Potter: A History of Magic.” The exhibit will move to the New York Historical Society next autumn.

The book takes readers on a tour of the Hogwarts curriculum – Potions, Herbology, Charms, Astronomy, Divination, Defence Against the Dark Arts, and Care of Magical Creatures – by exploring the subjects in the series, the professors who teach them, and some of the historical origins for items and characters, with activities and illustrations by Rowling, Jim Kay, and Olivia Lomenech Gill.

For example, Nicholas Flamel, the originator of the Philosopher’s Stone (or Sorcerer’s Stone in American editions of the novels) in the books, was a real French scribe who died in 1418 and was thought to be an alchemist.

Mandrakes, which second-year students help plant in Chamber of Secrets, are real as well, but instead of helping restore people and ghosts petrified by a basilisk, mandrakes were believed to be a medieval herbal remedy for headaches, earaches and insanity, best harvested by unearthing the human-shaped roots by attaching “one end of a cord to the plant and the other to a dog”.

The breezy tone of A Journey Through a History of Magic will appeal to Harry Potter readers of all ages. Professor Binns’ History of Magic lecture is unlike this book; it offers light on the mythology Rowling incorporates into her series without becoming mired down in boring storytelling.

Kay’s and Gill’s illustrations lend the book vibrancy, helping characters and creatures alike pop out from the pages. Younger readers in particular might enjoy the book’s activities, such as making a colour-changing potion out of lemon-lime soda, but it might be best to make sure they’ve read the series first: A Journey Through a History of Magic does feature some minor spoilers.

The real magic of the book, for older fans, is cataloging artifacts from Rowling’s collection. Rowling’s artwork, handwritten drafts, typed manuscripts, flow charts, and situations that appeared differently in the final published books may all be found in A Journey Through a History of Magic. In one draft of Chamber of Secrets, Harry and Ron Weasley crash Mr. Weasley’s flying Ford Anglia into the lake instead of the Whomping Willow; the names of the Order of the Phoenix and Dumbledore’s Army were originally switched; and Rubeus Hagrid warns Cornelius Fudge – who is not only a Muggle but also the Prime Minister of England – of Lord Voldemort’s threat in a manuscript of Sorcerer’s Stone.

Harry Potter: A Journey Through a History of Magic transports readers back into Rowling’s imaginative universe, much like touching the appropriate brick to enter Diagon Alley. It’s a mix of history and nostalgia. But, more significantly, it’ll make you want to pick up the novels again and relive Harry’s exploits.
