First edition thus, a collector's edition facsimile of the Moonstone edition produced in only seven copies, featuring fabulous metal fittings.
THE TALES OF THE BEEDLE AND THE BARD
"No man or woman alive, magical or not, has ever escaped some form of injury... to hurt is as human as to breathe."
THE TALES OF THE BEEDLE AND THE BARD began life as a book-within-a-book, a key item in the final book of the HARRY POTTER series. The biggest literary phenomenon of our lifetime, the HARRY POTTER books remain formative for millions, including the many who also reject J. K. Rowling's transphobic statements. Originally intended to be an extremely limited edition of just seven copies, Rowling published THE TALES OF THE BEEDLE AND THE BARD for a wider audience as a charity benefit. This collector's edition is a facsimile of The Moonstone edition, auctioned in 2007 for $3.89 million.
