More Sotheby’s Results
Dec 11, 2003
Sotheby’s of London today auctioned off several Harry Potter books, which included two copies of Philosopher’s Stone, a set of the first four books, and a copy of Chamber of Secrets. Prices ranged from 2040 GBP to 14,400 GBP for one of the first in the series.
ABCNews.com has a mention of the auction, with an interesting bit on part of what makes books collectable:
A presentation copy is a book the author has marked with an inscription and presented to someone. A dedication copy is a book in which the author has written a note to the person whose name appears on the dedication page. “Goblet of Fire” had been dedicated to the author’s father.
