A special edition complete set of all seven Harry Potter books has been sold on eBay for a staggering Â£18,200.00. The special cloth bound editions all signed by the author J K Rowling come with a certificate of authenticity… and a receipt from the police!
At first it was intended the books be deposited at the bank, but astoundingly the local Clydesdale bank turned them away unable to guarantee safe keeping until the auction finished. The local police stepped in to provide a police cell for Harry Potter where the books have been under lock and key until the auction ended.
The books were sold through eBay for Charity to benefit Books Abroad, who supply second-hand books free of charge to schools, libraries and colleges in overseas countries.
