    The First Edition, First Printing of the First Harry Potter Book, Virtually as New

    J. K. Rowling. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. London: Bloomsbury, [1997]. First edition, first issue (with "Joanne Rowling" and the complete number line on the copyright page, as well as "1 Wand" listed twice on page 53. Octavo. 223, [1, blank] pages. Publisher's original pictorial boards. Although this book was not issued with a dust jacket, this copy is now housed in a first edition, later printing dust jacket. Book and jacket are virtually as new - almost unheard of for this title. This copy was issued in a very small print run, around 500 copies, most of which went to libraries or into the hands of children. Therefore, a copy in incredible condition, such as this one, is exceedingly rare. It is the best copy we've ever seen.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
