FIRST UK BLOOMSBURY EDITION, FIRST PRINTING SOFT COVER
FIRST Bloomsbury edition, FIRST Softcover Printing in nice condition. Not bookclub, Not the Australian edition, Not the Ted Smart edition, Not the Canadian edition, Not ex-library, but the scarce true first edition, first printing Bloomsbury edition with the complete number line of 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1. Copies of this title unsigned, in similar condition are extremely scarce, with few even available for sale. (And examples even in poor condition selling for $2500 and up!). Wendy Cooling review is present to the base of the front board. The publisher page credits Joanne Rowling and contains no space between “r” and “1″ on Thomas Taylor 1997 in error. And 1 Wand is listed twice on page 53.
A nice clean example of this softcover still maintaining the strong vibrant color to the wraps with no sunning or fading to the spine. The wraps have some creasing which is more prominent to the back panel, along with some corner tip wear (please see detailed images). However the laminate is holding nicely with just a slight touch of lifting to the corner tips. The binding is tight and square. The interior pages are clean with no bent pages, no handling marks, no writing, no marks, no stains, no foxing and only very slight age toning to the pages. A very clean copy of this scarce title at a great price.
