The book is estimated to be sold for £40,000 - 60,000 (US$52,000 to US$79,000 or €47,000 - 70,000).

This rare copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stoneis part of Bonham's "Fine Books, Manuscripts, Atlases and Historical Photographs" auction, scheduled for March 27.

Other rarities will also be auctioned, such as Stephen Hawking's presentation copy of The Universe in a Nutshell-- with the thumbprint of the renowned physicist on the title-page and the marriage contract between Edward III and Philippa of Hainault.
