Today I was taking a look through Harry Potter en die Kamer van Geheimenisse (Afrikaans Chamber of Secrets, translated by Janie Oosthuysen). I happened across this printing error in Chapter 16. The page header says “Die Man met Twee Gesigte” (“The Man with Two Faces”) throughout the chapter.
I’ve highlighted it in the image below, which is taken from the third print in May 2000. The words Kamer van Geheimenisse (Chamber of Secrets) appear just below the header, making for a stark comparison between text from Philosopher’s Stone and text from Chamber of Secrets.
The title of Chapter 16 in fact? “Die Kamer van Geheimenisse” (“The Chamber of Secrets”).
