"Harry did not answer at once. He pretended to be perusing a page of Asiatic Anti-Venoms, because he did not want to say what was in his mind."
—Harry stalls in answering Hermione's question about him teaching Defence Against the Dark Arts[src]

Asiatic Anti-Venoms is a book about potions, penned by Libatius Borage.[1]


Harry Potter consulted a copy of this book while doing some fifth year Potions homework. Harry did not seem very interested in it, but pretended to peruse a page of it in order to marshal his thoughts after Hermione asked if he had thought anymore about her idea of him teaching D.A.D.A.[2]
