True first edition, first printing in finer condition than this or with more desirable provenance.Bookstore signings when Harry Potter was still unknown to all but a few in America. This is not a first edition that someone got J. Rowling to sign later in the 2000s.
This gem is from before all the magic happened. Once upon a time in 1997, an unknown author released a young adult targeted book in the United Kingdom that started to get some buzz. The American publisher Scholastic thought it might garner an audience in the states, so they published it in October 1998 and brought the author over to do some events to promote the little known book. One of those places was to Seattle, WA and one of those few stops was at the University Bookstore. The book was never read and never circulated.
Rowling and the book: Harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone. This mint condition signed true first printing of the book is now being offered twenty years after its release. It is truly a fine first edition in fine dust jacket, flat signed by the author on the half title page. The book is clean, tight, and unread.
