Harry potter collectors edition books
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Collector's Edition J.K. Rowling SignedI love the smell, the crackling of fresh pages, the glossy covers, and the beautiful writing. I love finishing a book and then choosing the perfect place for it on my carefully ordered bookshelf ahem…bookshelves…. Maybe e-readers are convenient, but they can never replicate the love I feel when I see a colorful, well-organized shelf. Of course, you would never judge a book by its cover, but as for the books you know and love, you naturally want the covers to reflect the treasure inside. And for Harry Potter fans looking for some beautiful collections to grace their shelves… the following sets definitely do this great series justice.

The main characteristics of a first edition first issue are a print line that reads 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 and the crediting of "Joanne Rowling", not JK. Prices for later editions in good condition are in three figures. In , JK Rowling was still a jobbing author rather than a worldwide superstar richer than the Queen, so there are a reasonable number of signed first editions available from her book tour signings. Deluxe editions can be priced in four figures if signed. First edition first printings will have the number line 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 and a block of misaligned text on page seven. Opinions about the number of copies printed before the errors were spotted vary greatly — however, it seems that only a small number came off the press which greatly enhances its value.
Signed by J. Rowling on the title page. Octavo, bound in full red leatherette, gilt titles and tooling to the spine and front panel, raised bands, all edges gilt, pictorial endpapers. In the original acetate dust jacket. Illustrated by Mary Grandpre.
