Harry Potter and his on-screen double, Daniel Radcliffe, have been companions to many children growing up — not to mention the spell they have cast over adults who love the stories of magic and friendship. J.K. Rowling has certainly proved that the pen is mightier than the wand.
Here at St Mary’s Books, we have been very excited by a touch of Harry Potter movie magic landing in Stamford. We have been lucky enough to acquire a boxed set of first editions of all seven books that follow Harry Potter and his friends as they grow up battling evil and having adventures equipped with wands and invisibility cloaks.
However, the magic doesn’t end there. Each one of these books has been signed by Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), and Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid). The final book, The Deathly Hallows, has also been signed by Voldemort himself (or rather, not quite himself, but Ralph Fiennes as the next best thing).
If you’ve exhausted the books, the films, the platform at King’s Cross, and the Warner Bros studio, this is the closest you can get to Hogwarts. These books are like a collective Horcrux, with pieces of each of the actors and their characters preserved for posterity in the pages.
This is a one-of-a-kind set of first editions which will bewitch any collector. Check your account at Gringotts, because you’ll need a lot of galleons for this completely unique collection — £16,000, to be precise.
