    The Rare First Printing Paperback, Signed by Rowling, With a Philosopher's Stone Bookplate Also Signed by Her

    J. K. Rowling. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. [London]: Bloomsbury, [1997]. First edition, first printing. Signed by the author on the half-title page, with a hologram sticker near the top right edge. Twelvemo. 223 pages. Original stiff illustrated wrappers. Minor shelf wear, else a fine copy of a true rarity for Potter collectors. A bookplate signed by Rowling featuring the artwork from the front cover of this very book is laid in, along with an original photograph of Rowling reading a copy of the book. The verso of the photograph has "J K Rowling - Author" in a somewhat familiar hand, though whether it is Rowling's, we cannot say for sure.
