   Handwritten "Beedle the Bard" set to auction0 Comments

The Guardian is reporting that one of only seven handwritten copies of Beedle the Bard are set to be auctioned.

The estimate is £500,000, however in 2007 a previous copy sold for £1.95m!


  Accio Quote:
The manuscript, which Sotheby’s will auction in London on 13 December with a guide price of between £300,000 and £500,000, was made for publisher Barry Cunningham, who signed up Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone for Bloomsbury. Cunningham was sent the manuscript of The Tales of Beedle the Bard on 12 December 2007 in a white Jiffy envelope. Inside was a cloth-wrapped, leather-bound manuscript covered in semi-precious stones and featuring a silver mounted skull. A note from Rowling in the front of the edition reads: “To Barry, the man who thought an overlong novel about a boy wizard in glasses might just sell … THANK YOU.”
