    Signed and Accompanied by "Hogwarts Express" Golden Ticket

    J. K. Rowling. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. London: Bloomsbury, 2000.

    First edition. Boldly signed in ink by the author on the dedication page. Octavo. 636 pages. Jacket illustration by Giles Greenfield.

    Publisher's original pictorial boards. A fine copy in a fine, bright dust jacket and a particularly nice Rowling signature.

    This remarkable copy is accompanied by the coveted "Golden Ticket" of the Hogwarts Express Book Tour, an ingenious marketing tool by Bloomsbury which entitled the bearer to have one book signed by Rowling. This ticket has been "punched," indicating that it had been used for the intended purpose. An autograph note on the verso of the ticket indicates that the ticket is circa 2000 and was used to have a copy of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire signed. Few of these tickets have survived childhood abuse or adult indifference.
