JK Rowling (2007) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, signed first edition
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. UK first edition, first printing. Signed and inscribed by Rowling on the title page: to Anna [signature]. Certified with the official hologram as called for. By the time of publication signed Harry Potter books have become so valuable that a plethora of forgeries have permeated the market. Aware of this problem, the publisher issued the hologram sticker authenticating Rowlings signature. There was only one public signing event for this title in the UK: the midnight signing at the Natural History Museum in London on 20 July 2007, for which only 1,700 lucky ticket winners were admitted. Signed copies not bearing the hologram sticker are to 99% forgeries. And in any case worthless for collectors unless some substantial provenance can be presented. This copy is accompanied by a plethora of ephemera further cementing that this copy was indeed signed at this midnight signing: 1 the original ticket; 2 the letter naming the winner of the ticket lottery (not on the pictures for reasons of previous owners data protection); 3 the official promotional poster; 4 the bookmark with the number in line; 5 Harry Potter reading stickers; 6 the paper carry bag.
Condition: an unread and very fine/ mint copy in like dust jacket. The best condition copy with absolutely no flaws whatsoever. The seventh and last volume in the seminal Harry Potter series which took the book world by storm igniting Potter-mania amongst kids (and at that stage adults as well). The first print run for this book was a staggering 8 million copies. However, since effectively only about 1,700 copies were signed at the only official signing on 20 July 2007 Deathly Hallows sells for a considerably higher price than many earlier volumes in the Potter series.
