Another HP First Sells

'Tis the season ...

Bonhams in London sold a first edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone earlier this week for £9,000 ($18,000); that's more than the other recent copy (sold at Dominic Winter on 21 June for $14,200), and beats the presale estimates of £5,000-£7,000. "Bonhams sold the hardback on behalf of a woman who had bought it originally with book tokens she had been given as a school prize."
