Again, I am sorry for the long delay. With very best wishes J. K. Rowling." In the original mailing envelope, addressed in another hand. Fine. [together with]: J. K. Rowling.

    This collection comes from the library of a collector who bumped into Rowling in New York, and discovered that they shared a mutual friend. The collector and Rowling maintained contact and the signed material presented here is the result. An excellent group, of the highest interest to a collector of modern children's literature.
