I also have a hardback of HP & the Deathly Hallows in same condition. The copyright page has a full number line on the left, but across from it is a number line that reads "07 08 09 10 11 12." Below is "First Edition, July 2007." Any help I can get would be greatly appreciated.
"All of the first editions of Random House, Pantheon, and A.A. Knopf books carry the words "FIRST EDITION" in small caps on the copyright page. These first editions are by our definition also first printings. This practice has not been uniformly adhered to during the entire history of all these imprints, but in recent years it has."
They reconfirmed the above statement in 1981, 1988, 1993, & 2001. Sounds like a first edition/first printing to me.
I'm not clear on the HP book, but from what I can find, it appears to be a 1st Edition but a later printing.
If you get serious about collecting, investing in a copy of First Editions: A Guide to Identification would be money well spent.
Hope this helps
