The exceedingly rare “Joanne Rowling” first printing of the Prisoner of Azkaban

Signed book: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. First edition, first printing. London: Bloomsbury, 1999. Hardcover with dust jacket, 5.25 x 8, 317 pages. Signed and inscribed on the dedication page in blue ballpoint, "To Danielle, with best wishes, J. K. Rowling." In fine condition. Accompanied by a ticket stub for the October 28, 1999, event at which this was signed. The initial hardcover print run was halted mid-printing after it was discovered that "Joanne Rowling" rather than "J. K. Rowling" had made its way onto the copyright page; this is an extremely scarce example from that erroneous first run, made even rarer by the presence of Rowling's signature. Tremendously desirable even in unsigned examples, this is a true treasure for any Harry Potter fan.
