In a glass case is one of only seven copies of JK Rowling's 'The Tales of Beedle the Bard' book. This was shown in the National Library of Scotland in Edinburgh, Scotland December 3, 2008. The copy of 'The Tales of Beedle the Bard' which Rowling presented to her first editor Edward Cunningham, is valued at over two million pounds ($2.95 million) and is due to go on display at the National Library of Edinburgh from 5th December.

J.K. Rowling wishes that if these few books earn millions of pounds, it will go to children's charities in Eastern Europe. Edinburgh by the way is the birthplace of Rowling. This new book is a collection of five fables mentioned in Rowling's saga about boy wizard Harry Potter. This will only be released in a few countries unlike Harry Potter that even got translated in a few languages. It's not creating that much buzz now but it is equally expensive. If you are a true Harry Potter fan and a collector, then this is your ambrosia. The professors of Hogwartz were even mentioned on one of the stories so do not miss this chance to get the origin of the Harry Potter books.

If it's J.K Rowling, I'm sure this won't be affected by any recession. Christmas time would probably boost sales once kid's know this would be out on Amazon for 50 pounds (100 Dollars) leather hard bound. Only 100,000 copies were made.
