Original harlequin cloth, with gilt decoration, illustrations to upper covers, and all edges gilt. The three supplementary volumes housed in a custom green cloth clamshell case designed to match the deluxe binding, all housed in an elegant slip-case with ribbon pull. Volume two signed by the artist Cliff Wright to the upper board image. Volumes one lightly handled. A fine set. The deluxe issue is a larger format, in decorative cloth binding. Harry Potter's wizarding adventures have had an unrivalled impact in popular culture today; indeed, some experts have referred to adults between the ages of roughly 20-30 years old as 'the Harry Potter generation', who are seen to hold markedly different values to their parents. Harry Potter is a series of many genres, including fantasy, bildungsroman, and the British school story (which includes elements of mystery, thriller, adventure, and romance). According to Rowling, the main theme of the books is death – although prejudice, corruption, and madness can be seen as dominant motifs. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
