Verified Purchase
The collector's edition of The Tales Of Beedle The Bard is a VERY cool Harry Potter collectible. I would recommend this any fan, but especially to those who like to collect the wands and other replica items from the movies and books. However, this item is probably suited better to older teenagers and/or adults as it should be handled with care. This item is becoming harder and harder to get and the prices are skyrocketing. In a sense, one could consider this an investment.

Now let me describe what you get when you purchase this... The entire item comes in ceranwrap. The first part is a leather case that has the title of the book on it and is designed to look like an ancient, time-worn book you'd see in the Hogwarts Library in the movies. It's about 1.5ft in length and 1ft in width. It is just a case though, however it's VERY neat. The cover opens up and on the inside right is an indentation where the actual book is.

The book is inside a velvet satchel that's embroidered with J.K. Rowling's signature. The book itself is about 8 inches in length and 6 inches in width. It's got a metal skull design with "gems" (they're just plastic though, I think) glued into the metal skull design. There is also a latch on the side of the book where you open it, which also holds it closed and/or keeps it from flapping open. It doesn't require a lock and key or anything, it just opens and it is made of metal as well. The book is bound in leather as is the case made of leather. The inside of the case is made of suede. The book has an emerald ribbon place marker and some interesting fonts. The introduction is actually in J.K. Rowling's handwriting, although of course it's just a print copy, not an original.

For all the die hard fans out there, this book is a must! It comes in a wonderfully large case, and opens up to a book wrapped in a velvet bag. Very authentic looking, with the illustrations taken from the original itself. The tales themselves are wonderful.... very clever. In addition you also receive prints of the illustrations.
It is a great quality item and I recommend it any day over the paperback version.

Best thing I have received from Amazon yet. My son got this for me for Christmas and while I had no idea at the time just how much he had paid for it, I am awe struck that he cared this much to put that much effort and money into a present for me. This is fantastic and so thoughtful! It is a beautiful presentation right down to the cardboard box that it came in that said "Attention muggles, do not open until December 4th or later." I just adore this collection and would recommend it to any die hard fan!!!
