Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
By J.K. Rowling
First edition, first impression of the Adult Edition (Bloomsbury, 2005). Signed and inscribed by the author to the title page: To Jan, with best wishes, J. K. Rowling. Rare thus.
A few instances of unobtrusive marking to fore-edge of boards; partial toning to bottom edge with small and inconspicuous initials to bottom corner of front endpaper; free from any other inscriptions - near fine. Just a couple of trivial signs of wear to extremities of dust jacket, fine otherwise. An excellent, near fine example overall or better. Rare inscribed.
