A rare first edition copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone has sold for a world record price of £59,000.<br />
<br />
It is the second time in two months the record has been smashed for an unsigned copy of JK Rowling's creation, which is 20 years old this year.<br />
<br />
The previous record was set at £38,000 by Bloomsbury Auctions back in July, but that record has now been dwarfed by Heritage Auction house in Dallas, USA.
