Harry Potter Book Bonanza - 12 first editions found including one VERY rare copy

Posted on 08/10/2019 in Videos

Hansons' sale of a Harry Potter first edition for £28,500 in July, 2019 has led to 12 more being found, all different but one is VERY special, even rarer than the one previously sold.

Only 500 Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone books were published in the first print run in 1997. Some 300 went to libraries and 200 went to books shops. The one sold in July was a former Staffs library book, so one of 300. The copy just uncovered went to an independent book shop, so one of only 200. It has been locked away in a briefcase for two decades and the condition is almost as good as new.

The 12 Harry Potter books will be sold on October 10, 2019. To find out more, email: [email protected]
