HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN. J. K. Rowling. HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN.
(London): Bloomsbury, (1999). First edition, second printing of the deluxe edition of the the third Harry Potter book. The first of this issue, which was issued simultaneously with the trade edition, is reportedly only 1,000 copies or so, and was the first time Bloomsbury issued the deluxe edition. The first and second books' deluxe editions were brought out in the same year as this edition. The second printing of this title must have also been a relatively small printing. This has the number line ending in "2." However, a number of people state that the second printing had the copyright changed from Joanne Rowling to J. K. Rowling. This is not true, at least in all cases, as this copy still has "Joanne." Fine, without dust jacket, as issued.

New York: Scribner's Sons, 1905. First edition.

She also wrote as Alice Cholmondeley. PRINCESS PRISCILLA'S FORTNIGHT was the basis for the play, "The Cottage in the Air" (1909), and for the British/German movie, "The Runaway Princess" (1929). Her later works were also adapted for the stage and screen, including her 1940 novel, MR. SKEFFINTON, which was made into the 1944 Academy Award-nominated film starring Bette Davis and Claude Rains (Wikipedia). Gilt-stamped green cloth boards; top edge gilt. Very good with minor aging and wear.
