You may need a little magic, or a lot of money, to purchase one of the very first copies of the book that introduced Harry Potter to the world.
In the UK it was called “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” and only 500 hard-copies were produced. One such book is going up for auction at Christie’s this month. Book specialist Mark Wiltshire says there are a couple of clues to finding one of those original books.
On the back cover the word “Philosopher’s” is spelled wrong in the title.
Bidding starts at $250,000.
