Unlike her second tour in 1999 (which saw thousands of fans at every signing), her first tour brought 50 to a few hundred fans at only a handful of stops.There were not many who knew about Harry Potter or J. Anderson's Bookshop had roughly 100 fans for their signing. The book is in VG to VG+ condition. The book has been read. The spine is tight with the top having some light shelf wear. The corners are lightly worn but still sharp (see all photos). The front and back boards have a little color bleeding which transferred onto the jacket.

The jacket is NOT price clipped, showing the 16.95 price tag as well as the Guardian blurb on the back and J.
