FIRST PAPERBACK EDITION, INSCRIBED BY J.K. ROWLING ON HALF-TITLE AND WITH A NOTE BY HER ON PAGE 53. The owner of the book asked J.K. Rowling to sign this copy and also questioned her why '1 wand' was mentioned twice in the list of other equipment for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry (page 53). J.K. Rowling wrote in the margin: 'this was taken out in the next print of the book (a mistake). Keep this copy, it might be valuable on day! JKR'.
