Notes

First edition, first impression, of Rowling's first pseudonymous novel, and signed on the title page as Galbraith, together with the hologram of authenticity. The first printing of the first edition ran to at least 1,500 copies, with a cover which features a quote from Val McDermid, while the back cover has quotes from Mark Billingham and Alex Gray. The copyright page does not have a number line but simply states "First published in Great Britain in 2013 by Sphere". It is thought that Rowling signed 250 copies of the first edition for promotional purposes before the secret of her authorship was revealed, some three months after publication.
