Jason Cockcroft. Hard Cover. London: Bloomsbury, 2007. First Edition. Fine.
First deluxe edition, first printing. Publisher's black cloth, with Jason Cockcroft illustration to front board, lettered and ruled in gilt with facsimile Rowling signature in gilt, all edges gilt. Fine copy, still in publisher's shrink wrap, with just a small split to shrink wrap at bottom edge of book. Overall, a pristine example of the final book in the Harry Potter series. The seventh and final book in the popular series by J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows brings the adventures of Harry Potter and his companions to a dramatic end. After several brushes with death at the hands of Lord Voldemort, Harry and the rest of the trio fight alongside their friends and family in the Battle of Hogwarts to determine the fate of the school and the wizarding world. The story deepens Rowling's exploration of good versus evil as various characters are revealed to have more complex motivations behind their actions, testing the sympathy of both their enemies and the reader. At its release, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows broke the record for fastest-selling book ever, with 15 million copies sold within 24 hours. Item #JKR069
