I’ve resigned to the fact that I will not get a hold of the eighth marvelous work of J.K. Rowling. Unless of course she decides to reproduce and circulate it commercially like all her other books or if I win the lottery.
One of seven copies of these coveted books fetched for a total of £ 1,950,000 at Sotheby’s in England late 2007. The book contains clues that were to prove crucial to Harry Potter’s final mission to destroy Lord Voldemort’s Horcruxes, The Tales of Beedle the Bard is the volume of five wizarding fairy-tales left to Hermione Granger by Albus Dumbledore in the seventh and final book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Only one – The Tale of the Three Brothers – is recounted in the book. In Tales of Beedle the Bard, the four remaining tales are revealed for the first time.
Lucky bastard! Imagine taking home a limited edition, illustrated and handwritten (by the author) masterpiece … I wish I had a rich dad, too. It sucks to be me in times like these.
