News: The Hogwarts Library Box Set

“Educate yourself, muggle!”

Author: J K Rowling

Genre: Fantasy, Adventure, Age: Children’s+

Released: 11th October 2012 (UK version)

I miss a lot of things when it comes to collecting books. I remember not being able to buy Fantastic Beats and Where to Find Them the first time it was released for Comic Relief. I remember missing the Tales of Beedle the Bard after the seventh book was released. For such a big Harry Potter (and fantasy) fan, I have my feet firmly planted on good-old financially boring earth.

It’s a good thing that epic series never die; Harry Potter now has a special Box Set for all those accompanying books that were gradually released over the previous decade.

Although the books have got uniform covers and are obviously newly designed, it’s a shame that there isn’t a NEW BOOK in the collection. Even if it was a 12-page pamphlet with J K’s signature on it, it would have added some fresh value  to this. As it is, it’s a nice collection, but only worth buying if you don’t have the previous versions, or are a die-hard fan.


A highly collectable hardback boxed set – containing handsome new editions of Quidditch Through the Ages, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (both in hardback for the first time) and The Tales of Beedle the Bard. The Hogwarts Library is an essential collection for any wizard or Muggle home. Eager seekers of wizard learning will find within a treasure trove of magical facts, additional notes from the esteemed Professor Albus Dumbledore, and illustrations from J.K. Rowling.

Purchasers can be reassured that two charities important to J.K. Rowling – Comic Relief and Lumos – will benefit from the sale of each set. These editions are exclusively available in this boxed set.


Available: Waterstones Paperback £25.00.
