Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

First US Edition, First Printing, Scholastic 1999, Hardback, Signed by J.K. Rowling, Fine

This particular copy was signed in black ball point pen during Rowling’s second American tour in October 1999 to promote the release of the book. Bookstores would only allow American copies of Rowling’s books to be signed and typically limited the number of copies signed to just one per person. This was when the Harry Potter phenomenon really took off in the US and Rowling signed thousands of copies of the book. In order to meet demand many of Rowling’s signatures from this tour appear rushed.

The book and dust jacket are in fine condition with no fading at all, the pages are clean with no inscriptions or marks of any kind. The book is unread, the boards are square with sharp corners with no foxing to the text block at all. Some very minor bruising to the spine base otherwise a pristine copy. It comes housed in a purple clamshell box made purposely for this book, with the title and author’s name printed in gold leaf to the spine.

The signature comes fully authenticated by Adam Houston ‘theHarryPotterspecialist’ the world’s leading expert in authenticating Jo’s signature. It comes with a full authentication package including a letter of authenticity and collector card.
