A very rare "proof copy" of the original Harry Potter book that someone bought decades ago for less than $1 has sold at auction for a huge premium.

Auction company Hansons announced that a first-edition "uncorrected proof copy" of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone sold for 11,000 pounds, or about $13,900, according to The Associated Press.
