A biography is a book about the life of an individual. Such books can be first-person accounts, in which case they are called autobiographies, or written by someone other than the subject.
Biographies about the lives of wizards and witches were sometimes called wizardographies. Flourish and Blotts had a section of their book shop dedicated to wizardographies. During her career, Rita Skeeter wrote several biographies about prominent figures in the wizarding world, although these typically seemed to contain more unflattering speculation than actual fact.
