The Tales of Beedle the Bard Translated from the original runes by Hermione Granger
London: The Children's High Level Group, 2008 First edition, first impression. Signed by the author on the sticker to the half-title, with the authentication hologram. Rowling initially began the full-length version of The Tales of Beedle the Bard shortly after finishing the seventh Harry Potter novel, in which the storybook played a major role. She wrote and illustrated six manuscript copies that were finely bound and given to people who had been important in the publication of the Harry Potter books. This edition is one of those given by J.K. Rowling herself. A seventh manuscript copy was auctioned to raise funds for her charity, The Children's High-Level Group, and broke the record for the most expensive modern literary manuscript. Disappointment from fans that the full text would not be made available prompted her to release the present "trade edition" and a "limited edition" as a Second Printing which was bound in a similar style to the copy offered for auction. These are the copies released to the public.Uncommon signed, with only six copies traced at auction.There was only one signing event for this book, at the National Library of Scotland. Two hundred children, selected through a lottery, attended the signing.
