  Potter book sells for nearly 10,000
Updated 12 February 2002, 21.16

A copy of the first edition of JK Rowling's Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone has been sold for almost 10,000.

It went for more than 9,700 at London auction house Bonham's.

And a set of deluxe editions of all four of the Potter books, signed by author JK Rowling, raised 3,000 for the Leukaemia Research Fund charity.

Rich

Harry Potter has made JK Rowling a rich woman
Rowling is one of the richest women in Britain thanks to her four books on the boy wizard Harry Potter.

And a Potter book of a different kind was also auctioned.

A rare first edition of Beatrix Potter's The Tale of Peter Rabbit went under the hammer for more than 5,000.

The fictional bunny has just had an image makeover to help him appeal to today's children.
