1ST PRINTING UK Bloomsbury Softcover

 

Description

You are looking at a copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone SIGNED AND DEDICATED by J.K. Rowling! This is a TRUE UK Bloomsbury softcover. The book is in Very Good+ condition.

THIS is a Harry Potter book collector's piece. The ABSOLUTE RAREST version of Jo Rowling's signature FLAT SIGNED in a 1ST PRINTING copy of Philosopher's Stone! Signed and dedicated in 1997. 1997 was the year Philosopher's Stone was published. Signed BEFORE anyone knew about Harry Potter or J.K. Rowling! A 1997 signature in a 1ST printing is a SUPER RARE COMBINATION!!! If you are an expert Potter book collector, I don't really need to tell you! 

This book is signed: "To (another!) Jessica, J.K. Rowling". Rowling is referring to the fact that this "Jessica" shares the name of the author's oldest daughter.

All important 1st printing points are present:

-Number line reads 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

-No space between Taylor and 1997 on copyright page (Thomas Taylor1997) 

-"1 wand" listed twice on page 53

-Wendy Cooling quote on the front cover.

The book is BEAUTIFUL and clean with a tight binding. It has been read. There is some creasing to the bottom corner on the back cover and some down the spine (see photo.) On the top front cover near the spine, there is a very small tear. The copyright page and signature page are inside of an archive quality clear removable sleeve. The book is stored inside of an acid free archive quality clear bag away from dust and moisture.
