Joanne Rowling has become one of the most celebrated authors of our time. She has sold hundreds of millions of copies of her books worldwide. There are millions of collectors of her Harry Potter Series and more and more editions are regularly being produced to meet demand. Initially, her early books were printed in small print runs and the demand for these has rocketed. As her first and second books in the Harry Potter series were becoming increasingly popular the print runs began to increase making the more accessible. The latter in the series had print runs of around a million copies and therefore reflected in the prices of what they can be obtained for. Deluxe editions for collectors were produced and have continued to do so over the years. American and Canadian editions were produced as the Harry Potter series grew internationally. The series is now produced in all languages as Harry Potter fame spread around the globe. Movies of the books were made and the actors and actresses that starred in them were also asked to sign the books wherever there was a fan waiting in the wings. So, now these are just as valuable as if the author had signed them due to the popularity and instant international stardom of these actors and the Harry Potter movies.

Adults also became fans of these children’s fantasy books and to satisfy demand adult versions were produced. There were also large print edition that were produced for those with poorer vision.

I have given examples of some of the books and their values in this eBook. I have concentrated on Bloomsbury books as these were the very first editions and thus the most sought after, especially the earlier books in the series. Naturally, those signed are worth much more than the unsigned copies, especially if the signature is proved genuine. Condition is also important as is provenance. Collections are also valuable, especially if they are signed. But, that is not to say that later editions by a different publisher are worthless as if they are signed you can still be in the money.

Print runs and Impressions are the same thing. If a book is a first print run with the number one on the copyright page, it is a first impression and so on, so don’t be confused.

This eBook will give an insight to the various Harry Potter books that are out there and the prices that they were estimated at to the price that they achieved at the various auction houses of Great Britain.
