It's supposed to be a copy of the book in the Library of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The first page was done in the style of a library borrowing log and had the names of many known students of the school. Dumbledore stated that he had to prise the book from Librarian Irma Pince's fingers.
The US editions published by Arthur. A. Levine didn't change UK spelling to their US version. They stated "… those are exactly the same – we didn’t have time or anything… Did I change the spellings? I might have… I might not have… Because, of course, the conceit is that it's a British school book anyway".
The book was hand-lettered and illustrated by Rowling.
The book was supposed to be an exact copy of one found in the Library at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The first page was a library borrowing log, that had a collection of student names and the date at which they checked out the book.
It had these names by dates ranging from 9 April to the next year on 11 March: O. Wood, B. Dunstan, M. Flint, C. Diggory, A. Johnson, E. Macmillan, T. Boot, S. Fawcett, K. Bundy, K. Bell, C. Warrington, J. Dorny, T. Nott, S. Capper, M. Bulstrode, F. Weasley, H. Granger and H. Potter.
An error was made in the first edition because it says it was taken out in July and August but that was during the summer holidays. It was corrected in the 2009 edition that had these names instead (in order): R. Weasley, N. Longbottom, S. Bones, H. Granger, Padma Patil, E. Macmillan, M. Bulstrode, H. Granger (again), and Draco Malfoy. The dates went from January to May.
