Yahoo News

Whimsical drawings, poems and prose created by John Lennon for his acclaimed books "In His Own Write" and "A Spaniard in the Works" are coming to auction.

The books' British publisher, Tom Maschler, has owned the material for a half century and is offering it for sale at Sotheby's on Wednesday. It is the largest private collection of Lennon's work to come to the market, the auction house said. (AP)
