Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban

First UK Edition, First Printing, Second State, Hardback, J.K. Rowling, Bloomsbury 1999, Pristine

The book presented here is the second state book of the first printing. There were said to be three states but third is now largely accepted to be the first Australian edition. This copy has J.K. Rowling listed on the copyright page and the complete number line 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1.

The book and dust jacket presented here are in pristine condition with no fading at all, the pages are bright and clean with no inscriptions or marks of any kind. The book is unread, the binding is tight, the boards are square with sharp corners with no foxing of any kind. The pages are clean and free from any creases, marks, ownership inscriptions or writing of any kind. The page edges are free from any toning, which is extremely rare with these books as the paper stock was of very poor quality.  The book comes housed in a dark green quarter leather clamshell box.

There are reported to be 5000 first printing copies across both states, however the exact split is not known. This is a very rare book which is getting harder and harder to find in such perfect condition.
