Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. First edition, first print, Bloomsbury, signed by JK Rowling in 1998 with a characteristic mid-1998 signature (contemporary with the launch of the book), with the periods still positioned after the'J' and'K', these were dropped by late 1998 to facilitate a faster signing style. JK Rowling's pen clearly ran out on the downstroke of the'K', so she needed to run over part of the letter again. Full number line, denoting a first edition, first print. No ownership name or scribbles within the book, no dogeared pages or tears.Boards of the book are clean. Light spotting to the fore edge and toning to the text block; toning to the edges of the pages, as is common with this book. Bottom corners pushed, spine tip and foot pushed. The first-state jacket is not price-clipped. No tears or rips, scuffing to the corners and faded to the spine.
