SOUNDBITE 1 Dr. Philip Errington (man), Director of Printed Books and Manuscripts at Sotheby's (English, 22 secs):

"One of the biggest surprises is the extent to which some authors have really engaged with their texts, or re-engaged their texts and given us little insights into the creative process. It's a fascinating conversation that opens up between you as a reader, them as a writer and perhaps their original writing selves."

SOUNDBITE 2 Dr. Philip Errington (man), Director of Printed Books and Manuscripts at Sotheby's (English, 13 secs) :

"One example is the JK.Rowling, where the author has provided us with over a thousand words and 22 illustrations. This really is the most important copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's stone."
