In 1997, a then unknown author named J.K. Rowling published her first novel, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (aka Sorcerer’s Stone). Bloomsbury Publishing printed a scant 500 copies – 300 paperback copies were sent to libraries in the United Kingdom and 200 hardcover volumes were sold in bookstores.

“I was slightly caught in disbelief when I saw [a First Edition]. I receive a few calls every week from people saying they have a first edition Harry Potter, and it can be invariably ruled out in seconds.”

— Jim Spencer, Hansons Auctioneers, England
