TOP SHELF

Giles Greenfield "Into the Prefects Bathroom"

A GORGEOUS finished rough sketch by Giles Greenfield, the UK Goblet of Fire cover artwork illustrator. A rough is done before creating a final sketch or artwork. A finished rough is when the artist adds or finishes the details on a rough sketch.

 

 Giles did this scene, from Goblet of Fire, as a commission (which is in a friend's collection). The scene features Harry in the prefect's bathroom with the golden egg being visited by Moaning Myrtle. This finished rough sketch was offered to me by Giles and now I am offering it to YOU! This comes from my personal collection of

Giles Greenfield artwork.

Mounted on board and matted. 37 x 24.5 cm

Artwork unfortunately not signed.

VG+ condition. No internal writing.

Prisoner of Azkaban Uncorrected Proof

It doesn't get much rarer than this. Uncorrected proofs from the UK are some of the rarest and most sought-after Harry Potter books. This purple proof is the rarest printed Harry Potter book on earth! One of only 50 copies! Unfortunately, many of these proofs were tossed after being read. It is unknown how many still exist.

This stunning copy is in VG+ to Fine condition. It is extremely rare to find a proof in this condition. While it is possible that it was, this copy does not show any signs of being read. The spine has not been cracked! The binding is incredibly tight and the text block is clean. The bottom of the spine shows some very light shelf wear. The back cover has what appears to be a few "bleached" spots.

 

This is the first of two Prisoner of Azkaban uncorrected proofs. The interior has word placeholder x's at the rear of the book. A very cool feature of the purple proofs.

This was my personal copy.
