How Much Are Harry Potter Books

how much are my harry potter books worth.

it turns out ive got 2 harry potter 1st editions. deathly hallows and the half-blood prince. they both have ‘first edition’ written inside, theyre both hardbacks with dust covers, both published by bloomsbury and deathly hallows has £17.99 written inside. and they were both printed in the uk. any ideas? i…

They’re worth approximately the same as any other second-hand hardback book. HBP and DH both had initial print runs of several million copies, so any collector who wants one will have no difficulty finding one. DH had a special deluxe edition released in the US at the same time as the “regular” edition, limited to a “mere” 100,000 copies – more than most books sell over the entire time they’re in print.Your copy of CoS might be worth a bit more, but if it’s the 4th edition, it was probably printed after the series became popular, so there are probably a lot of copies of that knocking around.If a first edition is valuable, it’s because there aren’t many copies of it, compared with the total number of copies in existence. Those tend to be the books where the author was relatively unknown at the time the book was published, but then became much more successful. The initial print run of Philosopher’s Stone was 500 copies, so if you had one of those, it’d be worth rather a lot.

How much is a paperback set of Harry Potter books in the UK.

I would like to purchase the British versions of Harry Potter which they don’t sell in the US. My sister is going to York and I’d like to give her the money to purchase them. So how much is a paperback set in pounds?

the boxed set of harry potter comprises the first five volumes and has a list price of £33 (though you can certainly get it for £25 from discount outlets such as tesco.you would need to buy the sixth volume – harry potter and the half-blood prince – separately. this has a list price of £17 (hardback) – though again large sellers will sell it to you for £13 or so.

The second Harry Potter book–how much is it worth.

Hello all,I was sorting my personal library by alphabetical order, and I was just going through my Harry Potter books. When I looked at my second one, I realized that it was an original copy–you can tell the original ones from non-original ones because of one single mistake:**Hardcover** pg 332–instead of…

There are lots of book appraisel sites out there. Some sites are free if/when you sign up others do cost you money for the appraisel. Do a book appraisel search on google and you’ll have all sorts of options. I do agree with one of your other answers though, I personally have the same copy as I’m sure do many other people. I suggest keeping it in mint condition and 30 years down the road it will be a nice collectible with all other 1st edition Harry Potters.

Help please. How much is my Harry Potter book worth.

I have a friend who wants to buy a Harry Potter book from me. I have a second edition Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows book. It’s hardcover and signed by J.K. Rowling with the holographic sticker. It’s in excellent condition, practically brand new.also this is on the copyright page.published by…

Well, the original was probably between 30 and 40 dollars correct?? You say its hardcover, in good condition. So if you go by that alone, Id say about 20 – 25 dollars. But you said its also new, signed, and has a cool sticker on it lol. ummm id bump it up to about 50$ depending on how much you’re friend is willing to pay. But im no expert so ask someone who knows more about it first.

How much are my Harry Potter books worth.

I have the first three books signed by JK Rowling and they are all hardcovers. I know my parents bought them when they first came out in America, but how do I know if they are first editions? To give you some other information, The Sorcerer’s Stone does not have the number on the spine representing the year…

You are smart to hold onto such things!Basically, the value of a book depends on (1) its edition or rarity, (2) its condition, and (3) if it’s signed.It sounds like you already know something about your copies, mentioning the absence of the “Year 1” on the spine of the dust jacket of “Sorcerer’s Stone.” That wasn’t added until the sequels were published. Let’s take things one step at a time.1) editon-You can usually tell whether a book is a first editon or not by going to the publication page between the front cover and the main title page. There should be numbers descending down to the number “1”. Often like this: 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1or 9 7 5 3 1 2 4 6 8 10These numbers show how many times the book is planning to be reprinted and the smallest number gets taken away on subsequent printings until years later, only the largest numbers remain. If your copies have the number “one” present as well as the words “First Edition” above them then you most likely have a copy that was sold when the book was first released. Keep in mind, each US version came out AFTER its UK version did.2) condition-There is a website called the Iliadbookshop.com which has a terrific description of the different levels of quality or condition a book can be in. I think it goes something like “Mint…New…Like New…Very Good…Good…Fair…Poor…Bad” (each one depending on how well the book was treated or looks or feels: loose cover/tight cover, pages worn or not, dust jacket torn, spine intact or not, tattered edges, etc. A book’s condition will greatly affect its value.3) signature-Most of the time an author will sell signed copies of their book(s) or offer to sign them for fans who bring their copy to a book-signing. The most sought-after type of signature is one that is just the author’s name on one of the first few pages of the book without any date or personal message added (for example: “To Wendy, All the Best, J.D. Author”) That’s because a collector will most likely want a copy that isn’t “personalized” so they can one day re-sell the book. Unless the former owner turns out to be famous (“To George, Best of luck with your ‘Star Wars’ idea…)It is a sad truth, but signed copies of anything printed (books, paintings, photographs, etc.) almost always go up in value, once the author/artist dies, simply because there will be no more future signatures from their hand.As for the dollar value of your books, I suggest you go to another website other than e-bay. E-bay only shows what the last successful seller was able to get for his/her book. The one I’ve often trusted for book prices is “abebooks.com” which allows you to pinpoint your search based on whether the book is signed/unsigned, new/old, first editon or not, has a dust jacket or not, as well as its condition. This way you can see how many copies are currently for sale across the globe that match your own and what the sellers are asking for them. Just be sure to read all the details they give to get an accurate description. Sometimes they even provide a photo.Good luck!

how much is my harry potter book worth.

It’s Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in first edition hardback. I know a lot of them were printed but mine has JK Rowling’s signature in the front. Does anyone know how much it could sell for?

That book is as holy as bible. KEEP İT. I would buy it! I wish I have the chance to get my books autographed.I’m suggesting you not to sell it now,. J.K. Rowling is still alive and people have the chance to have an autographed book. Your book would be precious after JK died. I hope your book won’t be precious! =)

How much older is harry potter than jenny weasely.

How much older is Harry Potter supposed to be than Jenny Weasely (In the book/movie, not real life)? Just curious.

Harry Potter is born on July 31, 1980.Ginny Weasley is born on August 11, 1981.So Harry is about 1 year and 1 month or less older than Ginny.http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Ginny_…http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Harry_…

how much is my signed harry potter book worth.

I have a hardcover chamber of secrets book signed by jk rowling … Just wondering how much it’s worth. I’d like an actual dollar amount please

You should really keep it (i would pass out if i had a signed book from JKR), but the value depends on what edition it is.If it’s a first edition then it could be worth thousands if it gets sold to the right person…like a collector or something. There are alot of those kind of people around the world.To find out what edition it is, look on the copyright page for a series of numbers that look like this:1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9The lowest number in the sequence is the edition number…in the example above…that would be a first edition. 😀

How much is an American First Edition Harry Potter book.

I have american first editions of both The Chamber of Secrets and the Prisoner of Azkaban and was wondering how much they would be worth?

The Chamber of Secrets American First Edition can go up to $9,000.The Prisoner of Azkaban American First Edition depends. If you have the version that has the name of the author on the copyright page as Joanne Rowling rather than J.K. Rowling, then that start from £1,500 and can go up to $12,000. That was actually a mistake that they typed her first name Joanne instead of her initials J.K. and was stopped in the mid-printing after it was discovered. There are not much copies of this version which is why the price is high (ignoring the fact that it is first edition). There is also another mistake in the same version that there is a block of misaligned text on the seventh page.The Prisoner of Azkaban deluxe edition American First Edition with the green cloth can go up to $5,000.The normal Prisoner of Azkaban American First Edition varies from $150 to $700.You are really lucky to have these two copies. I wish I had them. Not to sell them but to truly be a real Harry Potter fan I am.

  1. If it’s autograph at some point in the next 30-50 years it could be worth something, but right now it’s basically worth whatever someone would pay for it.

  2. if you wait to sell it and you sell it in 10 or 20 years it will be worth a lot more.[/DELDUP]At the start of the game, the player is already on the run as he battles for survival. He needs to accomplish a frantic and risky mission of finding the location and wiping out Voldemort’s Horcruxes.

  3. if the signature is real and not forged then probably about $375. a really big Harry Potter fan might pay at least $1000 for it.This is a link where you can downlod for free Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows game: http://bit.ly/1qXDRzFWhy would you even consider selling that!? I’m assuming that’s why you want the dollar amount. I’d keep it, it doesn’t matter how much the copy is worth though I can tell you that it would be a lot, it’s about the memories and the treasure of Harry Potter. To me that would be priceless but that could be because I owe JKR my love of reading, writing, words and phrases and considering that I want to be an author, that’s the world to me. Treasure that and keep it safe as best as you can, that books my world and I’d do anything to protect it and keep it close to my heart, which is what I do with my three worn-out copies of the series that even though you can barely make the words out on them anymore, I can’t seem to get rid of.

  4. i personally wouldn’t sell it because it is an example of an amazing book and probably one of the best fantasy book of all time

  5. I could guess off hand that you MIGHT be able to get a few thousand if the book is in pristine condition and one of the older copies. Newer, or more worn copies could get you a couple hundred.

  6. I have american first editions of both The Chamber of Secrets and the Prisoner of Azkaban and was wondering how much they would be worth?

  7. Since Jo became really famous people began forging her signature and selling them illegally so now with every copy signed an authenticity sticker is placed in the book. Since you own Chamber of Secrets it might be so old that the stickers weren’t around. I assume there are way to prove its age and thus, its plausible authenticity. If you know where/when you got it signed you could contact Scholastic or Bloomsbury about proving its authenticity. If you can you’ll be fine to sell it for whatever its appreciated for (Scholastic, or any auction house could tell you, I assume)for $500.I know that you wanted a dollar amount for how much it was worth (and sorry I don’t know) but I just wanted to say (like many others already did) THAT IS SO COOL! I want one! I wouldn’t get rid of it if I were you. Especially not now. If you really want to sell it, sell it in several years….10 years. I am sure it would be worth much more then than now.its ginny -short for ginevra – was born august 11, 1981 and harry was born july 31, 1980 -so about a year

  8. Yeah, HP’s popular and the movie series has just ended, but the last book was only printed four years ago. Not that long ago to make some good money. Sorry..

  9. RE:Well first, check if its real(the signature) and if it is then its probably about……350-500 dollars. Huge Potter fans (like me, but i don’t really need it) might pay 800 or more.

  10. On I found three auctions with JK Rowlings Singture prices prices ranged from $550-$3300 I don’t think many people will buy it, Although there are Harry Pottter Fanatics! in the world who pay a 4 figure sum. At ‘CDK Books’ $2,475US

  11. If you can’t prove it’s a real signature you could face people questioning and not buying the book AND the publishers might pursue you for falsifying the signature.

  12.

Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good.Harry Potter Pbk Boxed Set (J.K. Rowling) would approximately cost £ 23

  13. First editions are only valuable if they’re RARE. The first edition of The Philosopher’s Stone (print run a few hundred) is worth a mint. But by the time Half-Blood and deathly Hallows came out, the first edition print run was literally millions.Signed Harry Potter Book
