Aution of a complete set of signed Harry Potter first editions

 Leilão de Livros e Manuscritos Valiosos da Christie's
Christie’s Valuable Books and Manuscripts auction on 13 July will present a complete set of Harry Potter first editions, each signed or inscribed by J.K. Rowling (estimate: £100,000-150,000), offered by one of the most beautiful bookstores in the world, Livraria Lello, Porto, Portugal, majority owned by Pedro Pinto family, with a portion of the sale proceeds to benefit the Lumos Foundation.

The collection includes the very rare hardback first edition, first impression of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, with the ‘wand’ error on page 53 and the misspelling of ‘Philosopher’s’ on the back cover. No other complete set including the rare first edition, first impression of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone has appeared at auction since 2014. The set will be on view at Christie’s London from 9 to 12 July 2022, as part of Christie’s Classic Week.

A portion of proceeds from the sale will be donated by Livraria Lello to benefit Lumos, an international charity striving for a future where every child is raised in a safe, loving, family home, by transforming care systems around the world and working to end institutionalisation. It was founded by J.K. Rowling.
