Rare Harry Potter manuscripts go on display

20th September 2010

Hand-written pages originally intended to go in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets are now on display at a book festival in Scotland.

Signed by J.K. Rowling, the two pages are being displayed at the Wigtown Book Festival in Dumfries and Galloway, which started today (September 20th).

Gerrie Douglas-Scott, owner of the ReadingLasses bookshop where the two pages are being displayed, said: 'We're very excited that this bit of Harry Potter is coming home to Scotland for ten days.'

The manuscripts feature The Ballad of Nearly Headless Nick, which was edited out of the second book in the popular series before publication.

J.K. Rowling donated the pages to the Scottish Language Dictionaries five years ago to help fund a new dictionary.

The first part of the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is coming to cinemas in the UK in November, with the second part scheduled to be released on July 15th 2011.
