Footnotes

  • This set is being sold by Shona Macleod in memory of her friend Kieran Goulding, the 15-year old schoolboy who died in the Keswick bus crash in May 2010. Proceeds from the sale are to go to towards the purchase of a memorial bench (in Jericho Park, Whitehaven, where they used to play together), along with Cockermouth Mountain Rescue and North Air Ambulance.

    Inserted in the set, which includes first editions of the last two novels, is a touching lettercard from Rowling ("I am so very sorry to hear about Kieran. What a wonderful way to communicate to him... I have only once been to your part of the world, and it was one of the most beautiful parts of England I have ever seen - and full of wonderful people, too. With love from JK Rowling (Jo) x "), along with the letter from Rowling's PA ("I am delighted to enclose a full set of "Harry Potter books, donated and signed by J K Rowling to be used for your fundraising auction, along with a handwritten note for you").
