Creatively reimagined, the story comes to life with over 150 brilliant illustrations, eight interactive paper-engineered elements, and playful design details on every page. He is bullied by them and his fat, spoilt cousin Dudley, and lives a very unremarkable life with only the odd hiccup (like his hair growing back overnight!

Jim studied illustration and worked in the archives of the Tate Gallery and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, two experiences that heavily influence his work. The books have been widely credited with sparking a renewed interest in reading among young people, and have been praised for their themes of love, friendship, and the triumph of good over evil.

The last four books consecutively set records as the fastest-selling books in history, with the final installment selling roughly eleven million copies in the United States within twenty-four hours of its release. Yes, he’s the man who threw away a first-edition copy of one of the most popular books in the world; one of around 200 hardback copies. The number of copies published is unknown, but must be very small because it has only been for sale a handfull of times in the past twenty-five years.

Jo was in the ‘stupid’ row, ‘as far right as you could possibly get without sitting in the playground’. Her latest children’s novel The Christmas Pig, published in 2021, is a standalone adventure story about a boy’s love for his most treasured thing and how far he will go to find it.The binding is very well preserved, tight and solid, with the publisher's original laminate entirely present. Published simultaneously with the first trade edition, this volume reproduces the binding of Rowling's original manuscript offered for sale at auction.

The note is accompanied by a Letter of Authenticity from a premier authentication house, James Spence, LLC. First edition, first impression, hardback issue, together with publisher's bookplate signed by the author loosely inserted. Two proof copies were issued before the publication of the third book in the Harry Potter series: the first was issued in purple wrappers, and the second, with editorial work undertaken on the text throughout, in green wrappers.With interactive paper-engineered elements that lift magic from the page, readers can open Harry's iconic acceptance letter, reveal the enchanted entryway to Diagon Alley, and even make a sumptuous Christmas feast appear in the Great Hall at Hogwarts. K. Rowling collaborated with playwright Jack Thorne and director John Tiffany to continue Harry’s story in a stage play, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which opened in London, and is now thrilling audiences on four continents. HARDBACK - A very good or better example, one of the very rare 500 true first edition copies published by Bloomsbury in 1997. These were printed simultaneously with the 500 hardback copies, neither have bibliographic priority.
