The Harry Potter series has defined a generation of children’s literature. As the third installment in the series, the Prisoner of Azkaban proved that JK Rowling and her wizarding universe were going to become a cultural force. It describes Harry’s third year at Hogwarts, a year that takes darker turns with dementors roaming the grounds, an escaped prisoner Sirius Black on the loose, and a confrontation with a werewolf. The book also cements Harry’s friendships with Ron and Hermione as they progress into adolescence. It was an immediate bestseller, one that outsold the earlier installments by large margins. Critics and general readership agreed that the Prisoner of Azkaban would be read and re-read by adoring fans for decades. It won several awards, including the Bram Stoker Award and the Whitbread Children’s Book Award. In 2004, it was adapted to film alongside the rest of the Harry Potter series.

This first American edition, first printing is preceded only by the first English edition. It is signed by JK Rowling on the title page. It is in fine condition. In the original cloth spine, very nearly fine with only minor fading to edges. Text block fine. In the original dust jacket, fine.

A fine signed first American edition of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
