This box set was produced before the appearance of ‘The Prisoner of Azkaban’ and precedes any of the cloth-covered Deluxe/collectors boxed sets which followed. FIRST COLLECTED EDITION, with excellent examples of the author’s early-style signature in blue ink. This is an important Harry Potter item.

This was added to later editions. The book also shows the author’s name as Joanne Rowling on the publishing information page, this was later changed to J.K. Rowling.
The Chamber of Secrets is a first edition 7th print. There is a small tear on page 213 (see photos). Both books are housed in the publisher’s illustrated card slipcase.
