Which magical books would you want on your shelves? 你想要哪些书在你的书架上呢? 译者:Cahchia

If you had access to the books of the wizarding world, which ones would you be desperate to read cover to cover? We know you’ll say all of them, but here’s a handy guide to some of the magical reads we wish we could check out of the Hogwarts library, as well as some we actually can… 如果你有机会接触到魔法世界的书籍,你会迫不及待地从头读到尾吗?我们知道你会说所有的魔法书,但这里有一些我们希望能从霍格沃茨图书馆借到的魔法书的便捷指南,以及一些我们实际上可以借到的书籍……

The Standard Book of Spells (Grade 1) by Miranda Goshawk

A Hogwarts staple, The Standard Book of Spells followed a student of magic around from their very first year at Hogwarts and we definitely wouldn’t want to be left out. Hermione, of course, was an avid reader of this particular set-text, judging by the 112% she received in her first year Charms exam. The various grades clearly prepared Hermione well for life beyond Hogwarts – by the time she was on the run with Harry and Ron in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, she had some seriously superior spell work going on with those protective charms. 《标准咒语》(第1级),米兰达·戈斯霍克著

作为霍格沃茨的主要教材,《标准咒语》从魔法系学生入学的第一年就开始关注他们,我们当然不想被漏掉。当然,从赫敏第一年的魔咒考试成绩来看,她是这门课的热心读者。不同的年级显然为赫敏在霍格沃茨之外的生活做好了准备——当她在《哈利·波特与死亡圣器》中与哈利和罗恩一起逃亡的时候,她已经掌握了一些非常出色的保护咒。

A History of Magic by Bathilda Bagshot

This Hogwarts set-text would provide you with historical context for the wizarding world – although Harry also used it to find his owl, Hedwig, her name. Harry and Ron might have struggled to stay awake through History of Magic classes with Professor Binns, but we can’t help thinking they were a bit ungrateful, given they got to learn about the Werewolf Code of Conduct and goblin rebellions. Plus, Professor Binns didn’t seem quite so boring when he told the class all about the Chamber of Secrets. Muggle history is filled with all kinds of interesting facts, but we reckon wizarding history is even more exciting. 《魔法史》,巴希达·巴沙特著

这个霍格沃茨的设定文本将为你提供魔法世界的历史背景——尽管哈利也用它找到了他的猫头鹰海德薇,她的名字。在宾斯教授的魔法史课上,哈利和罗恩可能很难保持清醒,但我们不禁认为他们有点忘恩负义,因为他们要学习狼人的行为准则和妖精叛乱。另外,宾斯教授给全班同学讲密室的故事时,似乎也没那么无聊。麻瓜的历史充满了各种有趣的事实,但我们认为巫师史更令人兴奋。

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander

A book that resides in almost every wizarding household and an approved textbook at Hogwarts ever since its publication, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is high on our list of top reads – and this is one Muggles really can read! The result of Newt’s many years of travel and research, this book serves as an authoritative compendium of magical creatures. The A-Z includes all sorts of weird and wonderful creatures, from fiery phoenixes to foul-smelling Bundimuns

《神奇动物在哪里》纽特·斯卡曼德著

自从《神奇动物在哪里》出版以来,这本书几乎存在于每一个魔法家庭,并且是霍格沃茨学校认可的教科书。它在我们的首选读物名单中名列前茅——这是一本麻瓜们真的会读的书!这本书是纽特多年旅行和研究的成果,是魔法生物的权威概要。A-Z包括各种奇怪而奇妙的生物,从火红的凤凰到散发着恶臭的斑地芒

A Beginners’ Guide to Transfiguration by Emeric Switch

We have to admit, Transfiguration would be one of the classes we’d be looking forward to the most if we received our Hogwarts letter. And we’re in good company, Hermione said the very same thing to Percy just after she’d been sorted into Gryffindor – ‘I’m particularly interested in Transfiguration, you know, turning something into something else, of course, it’s supposed to be very difficult’. She wasn’t wrong! Once they got to Professor McGonagall’s class she warned them, ‘Transfiguration is some of the most complex and dangerous magic you will learn at Hogwarts’. We’d be dying to get started reading this beginners’ guide, and it sounds like we’d need it! 《初学变形指南》,埃梅里克·斯威奇

我们必须承认,变形课是我们最期待的课程之一,如果我们收到霍格沃茨的信的话。“我们有很多好伙伴,”赫敏刚被分到格兰芬多,就对珀西说了同样的话——“我对变形术特别感兴趣,你知道,把一件东西变成另一件东西,当然,这应该是很困难的。”她没有错!他们一到麦格教授的课上,她就警告他们:“变形术是你们在霍格沃茨要学的最复杂、最危险的魔法之一。”我们渴望开始阅读这本初学者指南,而且听起来我们需要它!

The Tales of Beedle the Bard

‘You’ve never heard of The Tales of Beedle the Bard?’ Ron asked Hermione incredulously in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. This just about sums up why the tales are so special in the wizarding world, and why we’re so happy Muggles can get their hands on these stories too. For centuries, the fables have been the staple of wizarding childhoods, the sound of bedtime stories. To children who grew up in wizarding families, ‘the Hopping Pot and the Fountain of Fair Fortune are as familiar’ to them ‘as Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty are to Muggle (non-magical) children’. And of course, ‘The Tale of the Three Brothers’ came in very handy to Ron, Hermione and Harry in Deathly Hallows, just as Dumbledore had envisaged it would. 《诗翁彼豆故事集》

“你从来没听说过吟游诗人彼豆的故事吗?”在《哈利·波特与死亡圣器》中,罗恩怀疑地问赫敏。这正好总结了为什么这些故事在巫师世界里如此特别,以及为什么我们这么高兴麻瓜们也能得到这些故事。几个世纪以来,童话一直是巫师童年的主题,是睡前故事的声音。对于在巫师家庭中长大的孩子来说,“跳跳埚和好运泉对他们来说就像灰姑娘和睡美人对麻瓜(非魔法)孩子一样熟悉”。当然,在《死亡圣器》中,《三兄弟的故事》对罗恩、赫敏和哈利来说非常有用,正如邓布利多所设想的那样。

Moste Potente Potions

Of course we’d be lucky to get a request for Moste Potente Potions past the librarian, Madam Pince, but where there’s a Lockhart, there’s a way. This potions book belonged in the Restricted Section of the library at Hogwarts, and when Hermione checked it out in her second year, she realised just why: ‘Some of the potions had effects almost too gruesome to think about, and there were some very unpleasant illustrations’. Why then, you may ask, would we want this book on our shelves? Polyjuice Potion, of course! Wouldn’t you want to try out transforming into someone else, just for an hour or so? 《强力药剂》 当然,如果我们能从图书管理员平斯夫人那里得到最强力的药剂,那就太幸运了。不过,哪里有洛哈特,哪里就有办法。这本魔药课本本是霍格沃茨图书馆的禁书区,赫敏在二年级的时候把它借了出来,她才明白为什么:“有些魔药的效果太可怕了,简直难以想象,还有一些非常讨厌的插图。”你可能会问,我们为什么要把这本书放在我们的书架上?当然是复方汤剂!你不想试着变成另一个人吗,就一个小时左右?

The Dark Forces: A Guide to Self-Protection by Quentin Trimble

Given the unfortunate fact that some witches and wizards more than dabbled in the Dark arts, we think we would definitely want to check this book out of the library. This book was on the list of set-texts for students starting Hogwarts, so Albus Dumbledore must have agreed. Hermione might have advocated a practical approach to Defence Against the Dark Arts in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, but we’re sure she’d agree that a book is always a great place to start learning, particularly when you don’t have The Boy Who Lived to give you pointers. 《黑暗力量:自我保护指南》昆汀·特林布尔著

考虑到一些巫师对黑魔法的涉猎甚深这一不幸的事实,我们想我们一定会想把这本书从图书馆借出去。这本书是霍格沃茨新生的必读书目,所以阿不思·邓布利多肯定也同意了。赫敏会倡导的实用方法的黑魔法防御术在《哈利波特与凤凰社》剧中,但我们确信她会同意一本书总是一个学习的好地方,尤其是当你没有大难不死的男孩给你帮助。

Quidditch Through the Ages

A favourite of Harry’s, this book is another one you don’t have to daydream about – it’s available to Muggles! Quidditch Through the Ages is a love letter to the wizarding world’s favourite sport, with trivia (like the longest ever Quidditch match), tales of on-pitch antics (you’ll be scandalised!), team profiles and Quidditch moves, from the Bludger Backbeat to the Wronski Feint. 《魁地奇溯源》

这本书是哈利最喜欢的书之一,是另一本你不必做白日梦的书——麻瓜们都可以买到!《魁地奇的历史变迁》是一封写给魔法世界最喜爱的运动的情书,书中有琐事(比如史上最长的魁地奇比赛)、球场上的滑稽故事(你会被震惊的!)、球队简介和魁地奇的动作,从游走球的后拍到朗斯基的假动作。
