Rare Harry Potter first edition sells for £75,000


A rare Harry Potter first edition has sold for £75,000 at auction, more than double the asking price. The book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, was being sold by an English ex-pat who originally bought it to help his children learn English growing up in Luxembourg. It had been sat on a bookshelf for 21 years when the owner decided to check and see if it was a rare copy.
