Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban | 1999, first edition, first impression, first state.

£8,500.00 GBP


The first edition, first impression of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban in the exceedingly rare first state, which is distinguishable by the Joanne Rowling credit on the copyright page and the dropped text on page 7.

Only 500 copies of the first state are estimated to have been printed before the printers error was uncovered making the first state of Azkaban extraordinarily rarer. Alongside the scarcity, this edition is now hard to find in tip top condition. Most fine copies are now locked away in collections of devoted fans and investors, making the present example all the more sought after. A strong investment piece.

Description and Condition:

First edition, first impression, first state in a near-fine example of the dustjacket. All first state points are present. Internally the book is incredibly fresh. Easily one of the cleanest copies on the market and certainly the freshest I have offered for sale (and as an expert in Potter first editions, I have offered a few now)
