First deluxe edition of each Harry Potter book, a complete set, each signed by the respective illustrator.

It was not until 1999 and the publication of the third book in the series, Prisoner of Azkaban, that the deluxe editions began to be published. Deluxe editions of the first two books soon followed and were thereafter issued alongside the trade editions of each of the remaining books in the series.
