The history behind the Harry Potter publishing world is quite interesting. These UK deluxe editions were released in 1999, in a very limited release. The number of editions in the release is unknown for sure, but often estimated at around 1000. The first printing of these deluxe releases have become popular collector's editions.

Please note, this edition is unsigned. Before purchasing a signed edition by JK Rowling, please consider exploring the provenance thoroughly, as fabricated signatures in the collecting world are an ever present risk.
