A first edition of one of JK Rowling's Harry Potter books has sold for £1,400 in the city where it was written.
Rowling wrote some of the book in an Edinburgh cafe
The Philosopher's Stone went under the hammer at Bonham's in Edinburgh, becoming the first Potter collectors' issue to be sold in Scotland.
The book - one of the first 500 copies originally published in 1997 - refers to the author as "Joanne Rowling".
It was sold by a resident of the Isle of
Mull to a private collector who plans to give it to his 15-year-old daughter.
She is said to be a keen collector of Potter first editions, and will receive it as a gift when she finishes her exams later this year.
Bonhams said the book - written by Rowling partly in an Edinburgh cafe - had been expected to fetch £400.
"Although the books have only been in circulation some six
years, collectors have driven the prices up," said a spokeswoman.
A signed letter by Charles Dickens inserted in The Life and
Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby fetched £11,000 - far exceeding its £1,000 reserve price.
Last month, three signed first edition copies of Rowling's books were auctioned in Salisbury, Wiltshire, in aid of BBC Children in Need and Actionaid.
The Philosopher's Stone went for £6,600; The Chamber of Secrets fetched £500; and the Goblet of Fire was sold for £240.
Earlier, another first edition of The Philosopher's Stone sold for £13,500 at auction in Wiltshire.
