A STUDENT will sell a rare first-edition copy of the first Harry Potter novel in order to pay his university fees.

Toby Rundle's copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is expected to fetch up to pounds 15,000 when it goes under the hammer at auction. The hardback copy cost pounds 10.99 and is one of only 500 produced in the first print run of the book in 1997. Toby, 19, from Williton, Somerset, was sent the book by his mother as a gift while he was at boarding school.
