Individual Instalments in the
Vietnamese Translation of Harry Potter


The first five books of the Vietnamese translation of Harry Potter were initially released in instalments, each containing a few chapters. By the end of the 'Order of the Phoenix', there were 61 instalments altogether. (The instalments were later published in single-volume formats.)

This is a simple reference showing the chapters contained in each issue. Chapters are often split, a trend that progressively intensifies until it is almost the norm in Book 5. In one case (Book 3) a new book is started without waiting for a new instalment.

The practice of issuing the translation in instalments was abandoned after Book 5.
