PICTURED: "J.A. Rowling"  - Only 200 copies were made of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in 1997 when the author was unheard of.<br />
<br />
A rare uncorrected proof copy of the first Harry Potter book which referred to its unknown creator as 'J.A. Rowling' is tipped to sell for £25,000.<br />
<br />
Only 200 copies were made of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in 1997 when the author was unheard of.<br />
<br />
The proof predates the first edition and was not sold or made available to the public.<br />
<br />
They were sent to booksellers and reviewers to boost publicity just before the first editions started coming on sale.<br />
<br />
It is said to be in very good condition, coming in its original white and yellow wrapping.
