Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Rowling, J. K.

  • Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing Plc
  • Published: 1998
  • Condition: near fine
First edition, first impression (Bloomsbury Publishing, Plc, 1998). Signed by the author to the front endpaper in mid-1998 upon publication indicated by the periods between the 'J' and the 'K', which stopped appearing in her signature a couple of months later. Many of these earliest signed copies were signed to the front endpaper, as is the case in the present example. Publisher's original pictorial boards with white endpapers and paste-downs. A little pushing to spine ends with some moderate toning to edges and a very small and unobtrusive puncture to lower board. The original and unclipped dust jacket has just hint of fading to the top portion of the spine panel, a couple of isolated instances of negligible wear to edges and a barely visible puncture to lower panel. A near fine copy overall of the second book in the Harry Potter series, bearing a rare example of one of the author's earliest signatures.
