The other, a copy of The Chamber of Secrets, was in better condition but together they are worth £5,000.

tuttavia, there is a very good reason as expert Justin Croft explained on Antiques Roadshow.

He was initially unimpressed telling guest Helen: “These are possibly the worst condition I’ve seen on the Roadshow.

tuttavia, he discovered the Chamber of Secrets was a first-editionand both had been signed by the author.

The book’s owner explained: “Crescendo, Harry Potter meant an awful lot to me and my family.

The Harry Potter paperback I have there I was given in my stocking one year for Christmas and when I started reading it I couldn’t put it down.

When the second book came out JK Rowling came to the Edinburgh book festival and she did a signing afterwards. She signed it for me.

Viewers then saw the Harry Potter author’s messageremarking on the bad state of the novel, scrivere: “To HelenThis is the condition I like to see my books in! (Leggere).”

Pointing to the second, Ha aggiunto: “E questo, being a first edition albeit without the dust jacket, £3,000 to £3,500.
