J.K. Rowling Mini-Book Sells for More than $45,000
A mini-book written by J.K. Rowling has just been sold on eBay for a staggering £24,995, or $45,423. The book has been given the following description by eBay:
A beautiful piece, written, and signed, on the opening page in fine black pen ink ‘by J.K Rowling’ the bestselling British author. A miniature, green hard-back (landscape) book, embossed with gilt decoration (measuring approx. 4×6 cm), which contains a selection of delicate illustrations of broomsticks, witches hat’s and Harry’s trademark wire spectacles in fine black pen ink.
As pointed out on The Leaky Cauldron, the book very much resembles the one that was auctioned off at Sotheby’s on November 1, 2004, to benefit the 999 Club and which raised a mere £11,000 in comparison.
Thanks to Angelica for the heads-up!
