"Oh, the thrill of the chase as I soar through the air                      
Quidditch

With the Snitch up ahead and the wind in my hair As I draw ever closer, the crowd gives a shout But then comes a Bludger and I am knocked out."

Ingolfr the Iambic, 1400s Norway[src]

Quidditch Through the Ages is a book written by J. K. Rowling for the Comic Relief U.K. charity in 2001. Written under the pseudonymKennilworthy Whisp, it is meant to be a copy of the in-universe bookQuidditch Through the Ages. The premise is that the book has been released to the Muggle world to help raise money for needy causes. It features a foreword by Albus Dumbledore, in which he stresses the only way he was able to take it from Irma Pince—Librarian of theHogwarts Library—was to "prise her fingers individually from the spine."

The first page is meant to look like a library borrowing log, which

Behind the scenesEdit

  • A discrepancy in the in-universe book is that although Harry had the book in his first year (1991-1992), there is an event listed that occurred in 1994. It is, however, possible, that the "real" edition was updated.
  • This book is available in the Muggle world (Dumbledore writes that everything is "fictional"), for the purpose of raising money.
