When Harry sold Harry!

A rare first edition of JK Rowling’s debut Harry Potter novel has been sold for £27,500 – by Harry Potter.

He was given the book in 1997 by his “flabbergasted” father David James Potter, when he realised it was about a boy wizard with his son’s name.

Mr Potter, from Waterlooville in Hampshire, UK, was just eight when the first in the series of blockbuster novels came out.

The 33-year-old said he and his sister decided to sell the book to honour his late father, David, who died from cancer in 2017.
