EXCLUSIVE: Interview with Alli Arnold from Auctionata on Rare “Harry Potter” Books
On March 30, the auction house Auctionata, founded by Georg Untersalmberger and Alexander Zacke, will be auctioning (naturally) two hard-to-come-by items from the series: first editions of the Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban books. We’ve all seen in the past how such first editions go on to fetch quite the handsome price. So in anticipation of this event, we spoke with their in-house Antiques & Collectibles Specialist for this sale, Alli Arnold, and picked her brain on the world of auctioning and the significance of the two novels in question.
Special thanks to Saroyah Mevorach (PR Coordinator) and of course, Alli Arnold for speaking with us. So if you happen to have at least a thousand dollars lying around that’s begging to be invested in some prime Potter estate, then certainly check out Auctionata this Monday. And if you’re interested in learning more about how to identify first editions, take a look at our own “Rare Books” section.
