Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling [PB], 1st/1st, 1998
London: Bloomsbury, (1998). First edition. This copy is near fine. There is some minor wear to the edges. The cover is bright and bold without any fading. The text block is free from marks and foxing but does have some light browning. The pages are clean without previous owner’s ink. Overall, this copy is in a near fine condition. On Harry Potter's twelfth birthday, the Dursleys hold a dinner party. Uninvited, Harry is visited by the house- elf Dobby, who warns him not to return to Hogwarts. Harry refuses, so Dobby uses magic to ruin the dinner, nearly getting Harry expelled from Hogwarts. Vernon locks Harry in his room in retaliation.
