In this question, we discovered that a few paragraphs of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets were changed between the UK (Bloomsbury) and US (Scholastic) editions.
One thing I noticed was that the new bit inserted into the US edition mentions Apparating, in an explanatory sort of way ("Apparate! You know, just vanish and reappear at home!") as though Harry, and by extension the reader, have never heard of it before. This made me wonder whether this is the first mention of Apparating in the US edition, and if so, where the first mention was in the UK edition.
Is this the first time Apparating is mentioned in the US (Scholastic) editions?
When is it first referred to in the UK (Bloomsbury) editions?
I'm curious to see how much difference there is between the two. It'd be strange if there was a time lapse of 1-2 books between the first mention in one edition and the first mention in the other.
